Small Projects #14: Child Proof Puzzle Pipe

02-14-2020 07:28 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

I had a wild idea hit me the other day, a pipe that won’t light unless you know the secret. I was thinking about making more wonderbread or swiss cheese pipes when it dawned on me that if I intentionally drill thru the stem the bowl won’t draw. So the only way to light the pipe is to cover the two holes that intersect the stem. Such a simple idea! The rest of the holes are decoys and decorations.

Small Projects #13: Covered Pipe

I make these blanks a half dozen at a time, each winds up as a unique ‘art pipe’. This set of blanks was oriented so that the sides are quartersawn, crown up. I drilled the blank randomly with both a 3/16” and 1/8” bit, each about 1/4” deep....

Been selling pipes to the local head shop. Just cut out six blanks from a foot long chunk of jatoba. You can see the lovely variegation: I’ll post more when I shape them. I’m hoping they’ll retail for $20 each. M

This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...
