As the name implies this Pizza Peel was first seen by my No 2 Son Daniel on LJs, and he asked if I could make one similar but rounded. (See picture No 6 for Candys nice work)

So I contacted Candy before I started and she had no objections to using the concept of her original Charity post as an example.

I used some timber from Degoose’s stash… New Guniea Rosewood. Great timber to work with !!

It was jointed and thicknessed, then a reverse glue joint cut in the sections for the edge glue up.

Once the Glue was set I cut the 45 degee edge on the face with the Table saw before rounding it.

Used the bandsaw to cut the profile and an Osc sander to finish the edges.

I then used a roundover bit on the edge to finish the profile.

Sanded started at 80 grit and finished at 320 grit.

Its another item for inclusion for the trip to Sydney at Christmas, along with my other Sons 1500 mm Table top and base.

Additional Information:-
There is a blog covering the intial construction of the Pizza Peel plus an additional blog on my Home made Backline clamps if its of further interest..

Dimensions:- The width of the circle is 420mm with a handle of 200mm, the material is about 20mm thick.

The final finish will be Rice Bran Oil, of which we will prep and apply on delivery.


1. CFrye for the original post inspiring the work, and
2. Lazy Larry AKA Degoose for the supply of the fine Rosewood pieces.

-- Regards Rob

Very nice! Very COOL!

What is that smaller piece, that has a hole in it, used for?

We had pizza the other night… we just placed it in a Toaster Oven on Bake… Easy in & out… :)

Beautiful grain in that rosewood, Rob. Will look even better with the oil finish. Hope you add a picture when it has been applied. Great job! 20mm thick? Wow! How much does it weigh? Thanks for the props and sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

That’s too good for Pizza’s Rob.
Great job mate.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thank you fellow LJ Guys and Dolls

I will certainly add some post delivery photos so everybody can fully enjoy the finished project

Thats Rosewood for you, great to work with aroma wise, and the grain is something else.
