This is my first crack at a pizza peel. We have had a pizza stone for several years but never used it since we did not have a peel. (no more excuses) Used some scrap maple, purple heart and black walnut. Bevel on the edge was made free hand with my belt sander. Finish is General Salad Bowel.

I’ll be curious to hear how the SBF holds up to the heat of the oven and stone. I was leery of applying it to the pizza peel I made, so I went with mineral oil instead.

What are your approximate dimensions on this peel?

Nice job on the front lip. Did you bevel the underside of the lip slightly as well? That will make things so much easier.

It is 12×14 not counting the handle. I was uncertain about using the SBF as well, but thought I’d use this as a test piece. I’ll post later after I have a few pizza’s under the belt.
Yes I did bevel the underside as well.

Couldn’t tell from the picture if it was beveled underneath, or not. That’ll definitely work better than some of the ones I’ve seen that are only beveled on the top edge.
