This is my first attempt at making one of these. I was asked by my step daughter to make a present for her father-in-law, who has everything, and nobody knows what to get him for a gift. She told me that he has a rather large Pizza oven equipped with the stones and anything else that goes into making a great pizza. I came here to Lumberjocks and started looking thru the projects and found a very nice version of one of these made by Jonathan Hope you don’t mind me borrowing some of your ideas Jon.
The overall length is 30 ” There is about 13 ” of exposed handle
The board itself measures 16” wide X 17” long
The thickness of the board goes from 1/2” to 3/8”
The top of the board front edge radius tapers back 1&1/4”
The bottom of the board radius front edge tapers approx. 5/8”
The whole thing weighs just 2lbs. 12oz.
I used Jatoba for the center, the light thin strips are white Ash followed by cherry, more Ash strips, the darker red woodis Chac-te-kote, Ash, cherry, and finally the outer edges are Black Walnut I used two heavy coats of mineral oil for a finish. Sorry but I did not take any close up pictures of the front ddge
