    That's just what I need! They look really nice and really useful... but alas, not feasable for the metalurgically challenged among us.

        Les,
        a great idea...nothing worse that having the oven ready and your still prepping the pies. i use a few pieces of finished plywood cut square and have them waiting to go. but i like the handles. It's time to break out the jigsaw>
        Great pizza, a cold beer,a great cigar and great friends...my idea of a great time

          Well, this certainly includes me! I went to Home Depot this weekend. I've no clue where to begin with the sheet metal. What did you use for the peels? The door? They have aluminum, galv. steel, and standard steel. How thick should I look for? What do I use to cut them?


          Sorry for the silly questions. Again, metallurgically challenged (but hey, a year ago I was masonry challenged, and now I've built a brick dome that's survived the better part of a Michigan winter!)

            Mike - the door and peels are 14 ga aluminum. I bought a sheet of it for my door at a scrap yard. The material for the peels I pulled out of the trash in our shop. I am making a peel for baguettes but I'm not sure 14 ga will be stiff enough - it's 20 inches long and seems pretty flimsy.

              One useful little bit of information I picked up here: don't use anything galvanised, because at high temps it produces toxic gasses.

                What's the best way I should try to cut the metal?

                  I used my bandsaw for the peels - a scroll saw for the door (to big for the bandsaw).

                        They look great. How many peels does that make it?

                          Thanks guy's! I am up to six, but four of them are small just to slide stuff into the oven. I think I'm done with peels, My next project is going to be a tool for adding wood. Right now I am using a cheesy tong from a fire place set - not cool.

                            Les,
                            i like the "resourcefulness"...same reason why i like to stick with wood...being in the lumber biz. Also, you're developing quite the arsenal. Good work.

                              Scratch that thought! I went to Home Depot to price the steel, it would take at a minimum, $20.00. This thing was listed at $12.00, rang up at $7.00. Done!

                                Wow. I just pull on my big glove and stick my arm in to add wood... but I also am missing a bit of hair on my arm too...
