Project Information

Funny how some people look at the knot in the board as something undesirable and I agree they can be but they also can be used for simple things…I hate tossing wood with figure into the scrap box and burning it….if you smoke…try a Black Cherry Pipe you will not be disappointed, my friend says Apple wood so that is next…just burn the bowl first I use a sacrificial piece with a hole so not to burn the rim.

great pipe! Oh and to elaborate on the "seeds" you might create a "cosmic" bird-like logo for yourself and wood burn it into your work such as a Phoenix… since most birds eat seeds and are bound to drop a few into the bowl from time to time.

Take care and thanks for sharing - it's awesome watching what you create.

Do you finish the inside at all? Or just burn it? And how about for the outside finish? I would worry about burning whatever is on the outside. Awesome pipe! You may have inspired me…

No finish goes on the inside of the bowl just burn it…the finish on the outside is food safe oil that wicks into the wood and drys rock hard try a cherry or apple wood pipe and you will like it…old school
And take it easy with the flame fire starter Joe, I bet you were not allowed to play with matches as a child?... Happy to have inspired you man that is cool mission complete
