OK gang, I want you to meet the new “Love of My Life.” Her name is Emma.

She is 19” square, about .4” thick, about 30” long- including that lovely appendage- and she is stacked !

Sorry about the risqué second photo, but she insisted on being photographed “nude”. The next photo shows her getting ready for work, wearing several coats of mineral oil. The forth photo- a close-up of her luscious lip followed by her slender appendage. Finally, I got a shot of her in action—Man she is HOT.

Mimi wasn’t impressed, saying she was “flat as a board”, although she did admit she worked well with her other “kitchen playmates”.

Actually, after making the last batch of rolling pins, I had a box full of cut off and pieces with defects. Just couldn’t bring myself to throw them away so this is what they turned into. It was a simple glue up- in stages. The original design was to have a flat handle but that wasn’t very comfortable. This design seems much more user friendly.

As always comments, complaints and compliments are always welcome!

Thanks for looking.

Karson,
Thanks!

Mike,
I guess we need to look for Mr. Steed!

Chuck,
Mimi really liked this handle much better.

Paul,
We do make our own dough and then do the pizza outside on the grill. I’d love to try your recipe!

Bently,
There was much discussion as to whether to “clothe” her or not. The wood grain/color is much more brilliant with the oil but I need to use quite a bit of corn meal to prevent sticking.

Dusty,
Thanks!

Sharon,
Thanks, I tried not to be too “linear”- one of my characteristics. I’m the type of person that walks into a room and immediately has to straighten all the pictures.
Mimi said it looked good this way.

The pizza ‘almost’ looks as good as the board! Very nicely done. Looks like I may have to add “pizza boards” to my to do list. Thanks for sharing.

so you’re the one that keeps moving my pictures? took me forever to mount them at exactly 22.50 degrees…

question – was the handled glued up first and shaped? or was the handle done last?

Lew, this is a great looking peel. (And the pizza doesn’t look too bad either). :) Obviously this one sets a new standard for the rest of us to follow.

Sharon,
Actually I am pretty proud of myself with the handle. The entire board was glued together when I realized the flat handle was going to be too uncomfortable to use. But, now, how to make it round? I’m not very good with hand tools- shaping and the like. So after some thought and remembering a technique I saw “Norm” do, I glued up a blank using thin pieces. The center of the blank was the same thickness as the handle and would just be for a temporary filler. The technique was to make a “paper” joint between the filler center piece and the thin strips. The blank was a little longer and wider than I needed. I turned the square blank into a round handle. Separated the pieces at the paper joint using a chisel. Cleaned off the paper residue and glued the two “halves” to the existing flat handle. Some sanding on the oscillating spindle sander and the results came out pretty good.
Thanks for asking about it!
