For an old pizza peal.
In between the heat and the rust hunt I snuck in a quick project.
One of the pizza peals at my friends brewpub had a broken handle so I ripped the peal into three pieces, threw out the middle one that had the old handle in it and glued in a new piece. Managed to get all the cuts and glue up fine before it got to hot and then snuck back out around 8:30 to finish it up. There was also a split on one side so that was also cut and reglued., Must have been pretty good cause I'm not sure which side it was now
Not perfect, but the kitchen treats them pretty rough anyway so good enough for commercial work.
As part of leveling the handle flush I took a fair bit off of the rest of the body to lighten it up a little. Oak is probably not the best wood for pizza peals if you have to hoist them in and out of an oven all day.
