Wow the craftsmanship is great! They are really good looking peels. I had thought to come here and lok for ways of making peels for myslef and here was your thread. Very nice.

I don't have the tools or the skill, but who knows what bartering a few pizzas might bring.

I'm not very experienced in pizza making...I'm in the learning curve, having just recently finished my oven. From what I've seen in videos of professionals, they make the pizzas on a marble surface (or similar hard surface) and then slide the pizza ONTO the peel (not sliding the peel under the pizza) and into the oven...pretty quickly.

I tried building pizzas on a pine peel (like you see at retails stores) and the dough stuck to the peel and I couldn't get the pizza to slide off...it was a mess and a pizza disaster :]

The peels I made are very slick and I don't expect the dough to stick, but I'm going to build the pizzas on floured hard surface and slide the pizza onto the peel. Just like this guy :]

8 pizzas in 3 minutes 48 seconds from dough balls to cooked pizzas.

OK, one last peel and I'm moving on to other things. This one is also Texas Wild Cherry (the last I have of it), 14" x 16". I made the strips 2" this time and shaped the front of the peel with a little less radius on the corners. Then, all three of them side by side.
