Hand Carved Pizza Wheel. Cortador De Pizza Tallado.




Dont you hate when you cook Pizza in your home and you can´t cut the Pizza in equal slices …well that happened to me and I decided to make my personal Pizza accesories .

No odias cuando cocinas Pizza casera y a la hora de cortar, el cuchillo no es la mejor opción y las porciones quedan desiguales...? pues bien eso me pasaba  seguido hasta que resolví fabricar mis accesorios de Pizza personalizados.


Step 1: Stuff. Materiales.

1 Stainless Spoon. 1 Cuchara de acero.
Piece of Wood. Pedazo de madera.
1” Screw. Tornillo de 1”.
Drill. Taladro.
Mask Tape. Cinta de enmascarar.
Math Compasses. compas de dibujo
Hammer. Martillo
Buck Knife.AKA mikaela. Navaja Patecabra.
Cutter. Bisturi.
Sand Paper. Lijas de Diversas texturas.
Beeswax. Cera para muebles
Varnish. Barniz.

Step 2: Cutter Wheel.

Smash the Spoon over an Anvil, but first cover the Spoon with Leather or Rubber , if don´t Hammer will harm the Spoon Surface .
With the help of a math compasses find the center of the spoon trace a circle and drill a 5/32 hole, then punch the whole circle with the steel puncher, with the pliers you had to remove the remaining pieces of the Spoon.
File the wheel in the vice with a triangle file.

Aplasta la cuchara en el yunke o un bloque de madera grueso, envolviendola primero en cuero o una lona gruesa para que el martillo no dañe la superficie.
Con un compas encuentra el centro y traza un circulo lo mas grande posible y perfora un hueco. Empieza con el centropunto a marcar el circulo y con las pinzas quita los pedazos que sobran.
Luego en la prensa y con  la lima triangular dale la forma a los dientes de la rueda.O si lo prefieres sacale filo con la Pulidora o Esmeril.

Step 3: The Handle. El Mango (u Agarradera Que Llaman...)

I Find a nice piece of wood, draw the design and start to carve with Machete .I gave the shape according the wood texture.
To smooth the edges I took “Mikaela” my beloved trusty buck knife and make the ergonomically shaping , Sand with different types of sandpaper,If you want you can engrave wathever you want or carve your name initials; beeswax or varnish it ;Fix the wheel and that´s all. Ready to cut pizza.

Encontre un buen pedazo de madera, y para ser honesto no me tome el trabajo de dibujar un diseño, simplemente empeze a tallar con mi viejo machete y a medida que la madera iba mostrando su linda forma yo iba tratando de darle una forma ergonomica, una vez que tenia su forma basica empece a detallarlo con mi navaja de Bolsillo, a la que de cariño le llamo Mikaela, lleva 25 años en la familia y la adoro.
Finalmente lije la superficie con diferente tipos de papel lija y le di brillo con cera para muebles. Si deseas,  tambien puedes pirograbar algun diseño y asi personalizar tu creación.

Step 4: Right On.

    This is wonderful! :) great idea. You forgot one thing. The thumb guard. Normally people dont know what that is these days. But its a tiny piece of metal before the blade, so you can exhert force while cutting with the thumb guard to prevent accidents. Helps to hold it better too. Your wood working is phenominal btw.

    Very nice. I guess you could also put on a salad bowl/butcher block type of oil finish to the wood. All of my pizza cutters are large wheel to keep the cheese from sticking too much but with a small wheel maybe you could cut fancy curved cuts. The small wheel would allow you to put more pressure on the cut so you only need one pass to cut the pizza.

    Behlen's makes such a finish for toys, butcher blocks or salad bowls that is non-toxic when dry.
