Pizza Peels
« on: June 06, 2021, 05:34:28 PM »
In between all the work on the shop, I squeezed in these pizza peels. These were made for a friend who will gift them. They have a traditional Friday night Pizza night in their family. One of their children are getting married and will receive this as a gift.

Nice work Mr Spinner!
I bet they'll be grinning from ear to ear when they see those two works of art.
I'm admiring the swoopy white lines - are they inlays or part of the glue up laminates?

Any concerns of the glue letting loose due to heat?

No more so than any other pizza peel glue up.
I did ask how they cook their pizzas. If they had mentioned a wood fired pizza oven, I wouldnt have been so extravagant. But, they are just using this in their kitchen oven to take the pizza in and out.

We have a local beer place that has a mobile pizza guy out on Friday nights. He uses a big wood fired brick oven that gets up to 900degrees. His peel is a maple glue up. And he keeps it there for 20 seconds at a time spinning and moving the pizzas around.

With that being said, no warranty is expressed or guaranteed. 😂

Andries, those strips are part of the lamination.

FWIW, at 200 degrees is when typical yellow wood glue (such as Titebond I, II or III) gets soft and then releases. At that temp it sort of reminds you of a nearly hard contact cement. I've used heat guns to make this happen in doing a repair. I learned this from a call to the tech folks at Titebond. I will ad that it's very easy to burn the wood surface to achieve that temperature internally down within a wood joint. 

That said, I have no idea about heat for a pizza peel? Probably not long enough to matter?

That is just stunning.  Obviously book matched, but how do you get those not-straight joints?  I'm guessing a band saw is involved and you layer the wood to cut both pieces at the same time.
