Made from red oak shop scraps, I drew a pattern that fit our oven on posterboard, then did the glue-up based on the final dimensions. I routed the perimeter and beveled the front edge on the jointer. At 3/4” thick, it’s a bit heavy, but it’s certainly sturdy. The nice thing is that I can use it as the pattern for making others. It’s rectangular because my girlfriend makes awesome St. Louis style pizza, which is then cut into squares ala Imo’s. We line our oven with clay tiles to cook the pizza on.

Looks good, but I’ll bet it really is heavy. I made one out of alder.
