Small Projects #16: Jatoba stash box

02-26-2020 07:13 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Made this box to hold a pipe, lighter, and sealed stash container out of some scrap 1/4” x 4” x 20” jatoba. Goofed a little and cut the lid too short (1/4” +-.002”, I make very precise mistakes!) Takes about an hour and produces negligible scrap. Sized to hold a pipe, lighter & stash Closed tight The makers mark

Small Projects #13: Covered Pipe

02-09-2020 04:02 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

In an ongoing effort to come up with new pipe ideas (and because the customer specifically asked) here is a pipe with a lid. The pipe started as 5/4 jatoba that I was ripping square profile slabs for pipe blanks. The last piece left about a 3/8” grain matched cutoff. I used a little glue and a piece of newspaper to tie the cutoff back onto the pipe once the bowl and stem were drilled. Once the glue dried I was able to drill and tap a 6-32 hole about 5/8” deep thru both piece...

Small Projects #12: Wonderbread Pipe

02-06-2020 10:07 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Trying to get creative with a new prototype pipe: Started with a chunk of 5/4 jatoba, cut square, 4” long. The 5/8”-7/16” stepped bowl and 3/16” stem were drilled to produce a viable pipe blank. 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....

Pipes #1: Six new pipes

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

Shop Organization #2: Quick and Easy Lumber Storage Rack

05-20-2016 05:10 AM by ThomasLightle | 1 comment »

I sold my old lumber storage solution which was… inelegant, to put it lightly. I am purposely storing this set of lumber outside, half because I ran out of room in my indoor storage, but also to have a bit of weathered wood handy, should the need arise. I went simple with this, using some pallet runners, I bored some holes at a slight angle ever so slightly undersized for the conduit pieces I had prepared as shelf supports. I then attached the wood brackets to the wall and hammered in...

Pipe Making #1: Introduction

05-18-2016 04:03 PM by MadMark | 2 comments »

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. ...

New Shop building! #9: ... Rack 'em up!

09-25-2014 03:01 PM by JoeinGa | 6 comments »

This was the mess you saw when first entering my shop. (Notice the picture taped to the wall with blue tape)...Bonnie asked me what was that little picture taped to the wall for? I explained that this was the wall where I would build a lumber rack, and that was a print screen I stole from Jay’s Custom Creations to remind myself of what I wanted to do there... .. . Now it just so happens that I have been tripping over two 2” X12” X16’ boards that someone was ...

Shop's Log #13: Bent Apple Pipe

09-01-2014 08:16 PM by terryR | 11 comments »

Wow, cannot believe it’s been over 2 months since I posted a Blog…still behind I am… I promised a bent pipe at the end of the last Blog, so here goes… The challenge for this project was to create a BENT pipe; meaning the airflow and tobacco chambers do not line up at 90 degrees. Seemingly simple, but not so using a lathe. Many pipe makers use specialized jaws to hold the workpiece for this geometry, but I’ve also seen a few use the techniques below… ...

Hello everyone,‭ ‬another blog…another pipe. Actually,‭ ‬this one isn’t just another pipe.‭ ‬This was my entry for the LJ Pipe Swap last month…another reason I’ve been practicing pipe craft‭! ‬This finished pipe went to jim65‭ ‬in Italy‭! ‬Very cool.‭ It all started out on paper,‭ ‬of course…here you can see my initial plans for the pipe which included a ring of antler.‭ ‬I had been practicing with antler on the lathe,‭ ‬as you can see on the small cherry p...
