I was too nervous to officially join the last BBQ swap, but wanted to follow along and see if I could build something in the same time frame. So with some scraps laying around, I built this pizza peel.
I pretty much followed Woodshaver Tony’s build for his pizza peels.

I used a combination of cherry and walnut for the main body and added some white oak for the handles. The plugs on the handle are walnut. It ended up being a hair under 1/2” thick. My favorite feature of the peel is the two book matched pieces of cherry on each end. Just one of those times where something actually works out right.

My 4 yr old loves to use this to serve himself a single slice or to the pick up whole pizzas from the oven, so I’d consider it a success. Thanks to Tony for the how to video he posted.

Any comments or questions are welcome. Thanks for looking.

This is an excellent project. What did you do to the front edge so that the peel will slip under the Pizza?
