I have been making quite a few pizza peels lately, and the usual size I make designed for a BBQ grill sized pizza stone is around 11”x11”. My friend owns a Big Green Egg, and he asked me to make him one sized for the egg. So this one is 15”x15”, mostly Walnut, with some maple/cherry/purpleheart stripes. The paddle part measures 15×15 and the whole piece is a little under 1/2” thick. Finished in a mineral oil/ beeswax mixture.

Thanks for the comments guys! I appreciate the feedback..
Here is a peel I made recently that is the smaller (12”x12”) size for comparison. This is an early design template I made a couple like this, but I was unhappy with the handle curves, and the sides needed more curve..I have since used the larger size design as my standard and still have to make the smaller pattern.

I design them in CAD then print them out on the plotter 1:1. To make the pattern, after cutting them out I spray adhesive it to a piece of 1/2” Baltic and carefully cut it out and sand it to the lines.

I use a upcut pattern routing bit in my router table to cut out the peels, after removing most of the waste with the band saw.

Nice stuff Brad.
I have been making a few as we speak. I guess a natural cutting board transition.

So how do you do your front bevel?

That is an awesome peel! I was thinking about making one of these for my wife and I as we have recently started making pizza on our grill as well. Great idea!

Look great.
One question….How long is your handle? Looks to be roughly 8”
