Large custom pizza peels for the Caputo's Pizzeria in Philadelphia

This is the beginning of  two large peels to soon be heading to Pennsylvania.

The smaller of the two is a 26 inch peel and the larger one is a 30 inch peel.  They are being made out of birch and will have a thicker handle to support the weight of these monster pizza's......


Here I have laid out some boards i will use to maintain the alignment of the peel.






Each joint is biscuited and glued to give it maximum strength and durability.


The clamps are in place for 24 hours. Once they come off the scraping and shaping  will begin.

The 30 inch peel will be constructed in the same manner, except a lot more clamps are involved.


Stay tuned for more updates soon......:-)
