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 — 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.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
