Cuba: Kitchen Tool?

My friend has inherited an item from pre-embargo Cuba from a deceased relative's belongings. He describes it as looking like a wooden pizza peel, except it is very thick; maybe about 2 inches. It has a long handle and it is really large, maybe 18 inches across.

Is it for the kitchen at all? There are no char markings or anything other than indicating it seems old, of course. No cuts on it, or other wear patterns.
