Pizza Peel

Made this for my sister for her Birthday. The peel is Cherry with a Walnut handle. Bevel was cut on the table saw with a jig I set for cutting bevels. Width is around 12 1/2” length is 13 1/2” thickness is 7/16”. I wanted it bigger but 12 1/2” is all the wider my planer takes, and I was in a little bit of a hurry to get it done. Finished with mineral oil. Also Thanks to everyone who has posted pizza peels on here, you gave me a lot of good ideas.

Nice job on the peel Kevin! It’s a good size for the home kitchen.
I just gave my daughter a cherry and maple one about that size for her new kitchen.
They are also good to remove those flimsy silicon baking pans from oven.
I put a mineral oil and bees wax finish on it.

Thanks woodshaver, your walnut and maple peel was actually one of the ones I got some ideas off of. Thanks for the tip about using it to remove baking pans, I’ll pass that on to my sister.

Kevin,
This is the one I made for my daughter. I did’t post this one on LJ’s but I did post the larger one I made before it.
They make nice gifts! I know your sister will love the one you made her.

Very nice, I love the long handle. I wish I would have put a longer one on mine. Next time I guess. I also love the way the plugs look in the handle.

I like the longe handle so you can get two hand on for better stability.
You will make more I’m sure, because you’re a woodworker and you can build or make anything you wish!
For the plugs, I just used a plug cutter and a forstner bit, not hard at all to do.
Keep up the good work!
Tony

The short handled ones are good for the smaller kitchens. Need some room to swing a long peel.

Wolffarmar,
I still consider my handle to be on the short side but a little longer than the one handed ones.
The handles I make are only 10” , just right for my little 66 year old tired hands.
It’s not like those long poles handles peels that they use in brick ovens. They wouldn’t work in my kitchen either.

Very nice Kevin.
Love the woods used on this one.
I have a cheap store bought one. I need to fix that.

Thanks for the inspiration,
Steve

Thanks Randy, Tony and Steve. We do have a small kitchen, but a 10” handle would still work good. I’m thinkin 10” when I make one to keep. Thanks for all the comments guys.
