Customer is a Packers fan so I put some logos slightly inlayed on both sides of the shank. The bowl and shank is Walnut and the forward shank is Bocote. The grain patterns on both pieces are awesome I think. I do not have a lathe so I use my belt sander flipped upside down and put in my vise to shape everything. Some day I’m hoping for a mini lathe and bandsaw to cut and shape.
Buffed and polished with Tripoli, white diamond and carnauba.

Great post awesome work… Thanks for sharing. I would love to see and or know more about how you installed the e-pipe portion of this project. I am also a vapor user and would like to do something along this line. Great job….

With the way this turned out I really don’t think you need the lathe. Except maybe to make the work go faster for production time saveings.

Thanks Rick and Richard for your comments!!

Rick- I do not have any current photos as to the placement of the components but I’ll try to respond later with some explanations.

Richard- yes the production time would go down but I’d like to be more exact on my wall thicknesses too. Harder to do that with my belt sander. :)

Thanks again!!
