Custom Long handled Birch pizza peel

Here is the rough layout of the birch I chose for this project.
The top of the handle will have a canoe paddle end shape.

This custom pizza peel  was made for a client to give as a Christmas gift.  It is on its way to Park City, Utah to be used in a wood fired pizza oven.

It was made out of local birch and has a four foot handle on  a 12 inch  round paddle for total length of  5 feet..

 





Here we have the paddle in glue up..

Peel out of glue up and the shaping has began




Custom laser engraving




They wanted laser engraving into the handle. Because of the length, I had to figure out a way to make that work.

 So the answer we came up with was to engrave on a separate piece of contrasting birch that would fit the laser printer(18") and inlay it into the handle.



The client was pleased that it came out very well.  
What do you think?


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