I recently made 4 pizza peels for a show I’m going too. This jig makes putting a bevel on the front edge very quick and easy. Using a belt sander works well too, but I thought I would post this incase anyone wanted to try it. I only have a bevel on the front edge, but it could easily be put on the sides too then just touch up the corners to match. But for these I only wanted a front bevel. The jig just rides on the rip fence. It has a dado in it to clear the bolts on my fence. Not much to it really just a piece of 2x planed down to the width of my fence, a big face board for clamping the pizza peel too and a board in the back. I put a coat of paste wax on all parts touching the fence so it slides nice. Last pic is one of the peels I just made. Thanks for looking.

Nice steup, and a very safe way to achieve the desired cut. Gotta keep all those fingers for the next project.
Thanks for showing.

Thanks oldtool. Always trying to keep the fingers safe, I’m very attached to them.

Cool idea!
I wonder if this could be adapted to a “rounded front” peel?

Thanks Lew, I have pondered the same thing. Havent come up with anything yet. I really like the look of the rounded front peels.

Hey, Kevin, just came across your bevel jig for the pizza peel. Great, easy-to-understand idea! The pictures are very helpful, too. It’s probably obvious, but I’m a little puzzled about the board behind the fence: is it there to hold the dadoed jig in place, or…?

Patchencindy, I can see how it looks confusing. The dado in the 2×4 that sits on the fence only allows the board to slide over the bolts on the fence top. So the dado doesn’t help in keeping the jig straight. So the board on the back sandwiches the fence keeping everything straight while making a cut. Hope this helps. If not let me know I could add a few more pics.

Think I’ve got it, Kevin. Can you tell me how the “back board” is attached?

I just attached it with 2 1/2 inch screws. The 2×4 that sits on top of the fence is planed down to just a little thicker than the fence, so that the whole jig slides smoothly over the fence without having a lot of back and forth play.
