Custom Pizza Peel for Patrick Jane's Gourmet Pizza Bar

 This custom peel was created for Patrick Jane's Gourmet Pizza Bar in Cary, North Carolina.

Through lots of steady use the original peel failed on a glue joint.  So....I am redesigning this peel to hopefully give it more strength and durability for this very busy pizza bar.  The peel is 30 inches long and 11 inches wide with a 16 inch handle. It is being made out of a local birch.  As you can see the handle is beveled for ease of handling.

The peel was created out of a solid board, re-sawed to correct thickness and then laminating the handle to bring it back to a stronger thickness.

Oiled and ready to go.
