My brother owns a small hipster pizza place and I wanted to make him a fancy pizza peel and here is what he is getting for Christmas.   The center is made from maple with very intense curly figure, then there is a strip of wenge, an African hardwood followed by Honduran mahogany, then a bookmatched piece of poplar partly because it is pretty, partly because it is fairly light, then cherry with a bit of curly figure in it.   I wanted the handle to be more graceful and the center boss just came out clunky so I am going to cut it off and just have a flowing curve to the handle.

Came out rather nice.   Its almost 21" wide about 3 1/2' long.

That is a wonderful gift. Your brother has a pretty cool brother   I couldn't tell from the pics, but make sure it has a nicely beveled edge so he can easily get under the pizza. I think the handle looks fine. It'll be sturdy enough for a "pie with the works".
