Simple two fisted handle Peel. Made with Walnut and Maple. 14”X 28 3/4” Mineral oil finish.

The handle is 10” L X 1 1/2” W Rounded over with a 1/4” round over bit.

I resawed rendom width’s of 3/4” walnut in half, glued them up and ran it through the planer. I used my belt sander to shape the blade.

I decided to add pins to the handle. (See the last two pictures.)

Hello Luv2learn!
I’ve been in the shop all week in 97 degree heat. I made a few stools for my daughter’s new kitchen but haven’t posted them yet. Waiting on and order of more Cherry wood to make the seats. While I’m waiting I made this peel for getting the pizza in and out of the oven. Should have made this a long time ago! LOL!!!

Thanks for all the nice comments!

I’ll add the handle measurements here and also put them in the description. 10” L X 1 1/2” W Rounded over with a 1/4” round over bit. I like a longer handle.
