Pizza Peel & Rocker Knife

Step up pizza night with a custom set of kitchen tools you make yourself. With matching walnut and cherry details, this set looks great too.

The scenario (in black and white) is similar across the land: the oven beeps and a juggling act ensues. With oven mitts, a spatula, and a cookie sheet gathered on top of the stove, you open the oven door and rattle the rack out. You grope for the cookie sheet with the mitted hand and grab the spatula with the other. From the back side of the pizza the spatula’s task is to coax the pie towards the cookie sheet without it sliding past the sheet straight to the floor. Who needs this? Imagine, if you will, another time and place (in living color) the chime goes off on the oven and you glide into the kitchen picking up the peel as you open the oven door. After you release the front edge and slip the wonderful new tool under that bubbling dinner, you transfer it to the island to cool. A few moments later you pick up the peel’s partner, the rocker knife , and with four rolls around the pizza — dinner is ready. Have I sold you yet? The peel you see here is made of walnut and has a cherry handle laminated to the top to add stiffness and a little visual contrast. The rocker knife has a stainless steel blade that you’ll rivet to a walnut and cherry handle. It’s not a complex project, but it will be loved, so you might want to make several for the sake of gift-giving.
