Pizza Peel

With this attractive and handy item, you may never want to eat pizza out of a box again.

At first glance, this pizza peel looks quite simple β€” just a flat, glued-up paddle with an integral handle. But take a closer look and there are a few details to work out. For one, the handle and paddle are made separately and connected by a curved, splined joint. This requires shaping these two parts to fit together seamlessly. Another challenge was figuring out a way to taper the paddle along its entire length. For this, we came up with a simple jig that allows you to do the tapering with a planer.

  • 10 printable (digital) pages of step-by-step instructions

  • Pattern for making the curved spline joint
