A very fancy peel...
Here's what me and my Exacto blade did this afternoon:
It's technically called a divider shelf. Came with a suitcase we bought. You're supposed to put your shoes and other odds'n'sods in the bottom of the case, then the shelf, then your nicely folded clothes. Harumph! I have my own method.
Thank goodness, a suitcase shelf is one of those things I don't get round to throwing out. Today it became my very fancy Eiffel Tower Baker's Peel. I sliced the excess off one long side to make a straight edge -- those are the two black bits upper left corner -- but left the other long side "as is." The indented area forms a good place to grab hold.
My new peel is thin, fairly sturdy but also slightly flexible. And it works! I just transferred the next attempt at Jeffrey Hamelman's beer bread with roasted barley from the canvas couche where the loaves rose to a parchment-lined half sheet pan. Into the oven they went. Looking good. Will post to the blog later.
