    Hannibal, opinions will vary, but I think you could get started by buying a kit from Tim (jhlowe) and use buffing/sanding/grinding wheel setup for the rest. He drills the hole and inserts a stem for you, then your job is to remove material until the pipe you want comes out. Then stain, polish, and smoke!

    I have taken it a little further and am drilling and fitting the stems myself, but that's the next part of the slope.

    Maybe I'll take some "in process" pictures next time around and shoot them to you.
    Hell with that, post them here for all to see!

    Dan,

    Did Tim steer you in the direction of using Delrin tenons. I buy them from him and swear by them. And he never seems too busy to give advice if asked.

    Yep, that's exactly what I went with. It worked great!

    Thanks for all the kind words guys. It's inspiring. Now that I've got it mostly figured out, I've got to start making some for bombs!

    Nice work!

    Delrin is great stuff for tenons, and it's paying off for you. That junction on the olive wood is nice.

    I was thinking of carving one from oak, but I have no idea which wood would be best. Can you explain why you picked olive wood?

    There were really several reasons that I went with Olivewood. I had seen other professional pipemakers use that material before, so I knew it would probably work OK. I also really liked the way it looked. Olivewood seems to have a very unique grain to it. Lastly, you want to pick a wood that is very dense so it doesn't burn up on you, and leech out other flavors into the smoke. I am not certain that oak would work for that reason? If you want to try your hand at it, I'd suggest that you contact Tim West at jhlowe.com and buy one of his briar kits. He'll drill it and add a stem, then you do the carving. He'll customize it to your preferences.
