My Daughter asked me to glue a crack in her old pizza paddle. Since she is one hour away, I decided to make her a new one. I glued up walnut and the maple accent. I then built a sled to plane the wedge shape on the paddle. I started with rough sawed wood. Planed to 3/4" thick and glued pieces together. I then planed to 9/16" and then attached to sled with one screw in the handle. Put it through planer until leading edge was 1/8". The reset was done with sanding to get the leading edge to approximately 1/6". Place a piece of leather through the handle hole for hanging. Now just need to get out of quarantine so I can give it to her.

It’s a wonder you didn’t see that front edge get mangled at such a thin setting - I assume you crept up to your final thickness ever so slowly? I use a sled on my planer to make 1/4” panels - will be giving this a try. Very pretty pieced of work you made there....
