Default peels for bread. Long handled.

Hello once again,
I do both bread and pizza in my 42" oven. I am looking for a peel specifically for bread that is long handled (60" or so), with a wider and longer head (is that what it's called) and squared off rather than rounded. I like to make baguettes 18" - 24" and to fit at least four on the peel at once. Looking on the Internet all I can find are short handled, 12" or so rounded heads. I've seen pictures of what I'm looking for so I know I'm not making this up. I would be willing to make one too.

So, any ideas as to where I might buy one, and any ideas as to what wood peels are generally made of?

Thanks,
Kim

Thanks. I looked at items #32100028 (peel board) and #32100023 (handle) and it appears to be what I'm talking about. I just emailed them seconds ago to make sure. Good find. Thanks.

I haven't ordered from them, but they were recommended in the resource list of Maggie Glezer's Artisan Baking book. Been thinking about getting some real couches ...

Though I can't find exactly what I want on this site, Wholesale Restaurant Supply they do have items which might interest others here. Well worth the look.

You might consider simply using a modified wide board, pine or whatever. Here is a poor quality photo of a simple answer to your question. Sorry for the quality, the photo was taken in 1977 with a Kodak 110 camera. The location was Hiva Oa in the Marquesas Islands and the WFO was one reputed to have been rebuilt by Paul Gauguin. The bread output from this oven fed the village of Atuona.

Bests,
Wiley

If wiley was messing around with brick ovens in 1977, I think he gets the prize for obsession longevity.
