My oven is now up and running, and I had the sudden realization that I don't have any tools.
I do now! Or at least a temporary solution for a couple of them.
The two peels are 13" and 8" both constructed with elm for the plate section, and oak for the handles. I'm fortunate to have my own dowel maker, so things such as handles aren't an issue. I'm also fortunate to have bandsaw and powered carving tools.
Other goodies include a fire push, an ash rake, and a small curved loading shovel. I also have an idea for a further tool that I haven't seen anyone with. I'll make the prototype tomorrow, but the end tool would also need to be metal.
The handles are 26mm and the two surfaces of the peels started off at 30mm at the handle end, then after drilling and shaping on the bandsaw, I routed 10mm off both sides, then used my Holey Galahad carving/shaping tools, to gradually shape the underside to from 10mm at the handle end, to next to nothing at the edges. Having not seen what other peels look like, these certainly have a very natural and balanced feel about them.
I also made a tool today for lifting clay flower pots in and out of the oven. I'll try and grab a photo tomorrow.
