Project Information

Like a bad penny, I keep turning up…lol A while back my daughter was admiring some peels that her favorite pizza place in Charlotte had hanging on the wall. I uttered the infamous words that had doomed many a woodworker…"I think I can make that"...lol. walnut, cherry and maple strips that are about 3/8ths thick. Overall it's 28" with the main body being 16" wide and 18" long. Coated in cutting board oil. Missed yall!!!

Another fine job by BusterB!! Damn, I've been waiting to get that one out for a long time. That, sir, is one fine looking peel. The two lighter colored strips either side of center (I assume Maple?) have a fantastic grain. I think there are few things more enjoyable than oiling a finished product. Great job, buddy.

Ken- thank you sir. Awesome outfeed table btw!!!

L2L- thank you sir!! The maple and cherry were a tad bit closer in color than I would have liked but I think it turned out ok.

Jeff- Thank you buddy. Correct on the maple being closer to the center. Well played sir. I wholeheartedly agree on the running oil into wood comment!!!

Tony- thank you again. Hopefully someday I can get my peels up to the level of yours, not going to happen but I can dream right…lol

Dave- thank you sir. It's good to be building again. Almost too good…got multiple projects running at the moment. I could have used your guidance the other day when I turning some cedar to make some push/pull knobs for one of them. A super Dave turner I am not…lol

Nice job with the peel. I had made one a while back, but with a longer handle.

Chris- thank you. That is a super slick peel you made. I can see the maple and walnut but what is the lighter outer wood??? Oak maybe? Looks nice whatever it is!!!

Thanks Buster! The two outer sections is red oak, the center section is Southern pine, and the thin dark strips are walnut.
