It was a leftover pizza from a birthday party the evening before and I needed a “prop” for the video. We were reheating it for lunch and it was the perfect opportunity to get it for the video. However, my wife does make nice looking pizzas.

Thanks for the compliments too! I’m waiting for another video from you now.

Sweet Production!!!! I just ate my 4:45am “healthy” breakfast, and suddenly I feel like eating pizza! Nice work on the project as well, the shaping turning out nice.

Great videos! They have inspired me to make one of these for myself.

I have one quick question for you – I saw how you got the taper on the sides of the peel, but how did you get that nice even taper on the curved front?

Brett, very neat. Great production work on the video and awesome craftsmanship in the production of the piece. When I saw the handle in the vice and you were using the rasp, I thought “this would be the point where the thing would break if it had been my project.”

Like your tag John 3:16

Thanks for all of the positive comments! I am glad that you enjoyed the project. I had a ton of fun making it.

KnotCurser- I made the taper on the curved portion the same way as the sides, on the tablesaw.

I would take a cut, then rotate the piece some, run it through, rotate, run it through, rotate, run it through….. until I had the bulk of the curve done and then sanded it smooth.

I had that in the video but I decided NOT to show that part only because I didn’t want everyone to think that this was the best way of doing it. It is a cut that I am comfortable with and I didn’t want others to think “Well, he did it and it didn’t look dangerous, so I will go do it” and then go get hurt.

hjt- I think that it says it all, thank you! (the tag that is!
