i made a a few pizza peels for the Christmas holidays this year. I mostly followed Mark Spagnolo’s plan on Wood Whisperer.

I glued up the handle and the first two sides in walnut at 8/4, then I resawed them to 1/2 inch. That allowed me to use the planer before it grew too wide. After cleaning up the resawed edge I added the outside maple bringing them to about 15 inches wide.

I added the overlapping walnut handle and finished them with Tried and True oil-wax finish.

I’m really happy with the final proportions for making a typical 14 inch pie. It would be a good idea to wet-down to raise the grain and resand once before you apply the finish.

Thanks for looking and Happy New Year! AJ

Looks great. Now for the home made grille/smoked pizza! The son we live with does the grilling/smoking of homemade pizza and to call it merely terrific is an insult!

Like the contrast in the woods. Much nicer than the one I bought.

Thanks for the nice comments! We gave them to our kids along with a pizza stone to round out the theme. I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season. Regards. AJ
