Hello, smokers and tokers! Welcome to my page!
Reading a post by Jackdub a couple of weeks ago got me thinking about carving out a couple of wood pipes, just to see how they would come out. He had made a basic wood pipe from beech wood, and that got me thinking about carving again. Years ago, I used to carve different things, one of the main things being spoons. I got to thinking that carving a pipe isn't too different than carving a wood spoon, except for the hole that's drilled through the stem to reach the bowl. I had to go and buy a couple of new drill bits for the project, to make sure I would get cleanly drilled holes. A bit that's made specifically for drilling in wood will cut a much cleaner hole than a regular drill bit.
I decided that instead of taking a whole bunch of pictures of the process and posting them, I would make a series of videos for this project. This is the first video of the series. You won't see this video anywhere else but here on smoke, it's an unlisted youtube video.
