Nording Carve Your Own Empty
PostSubject: Nording Carve Your Own   Nording Carve Your Own EmptyThu Feb 03, 2011 11:53 am

So I decided to order a Carve-your own pipe kit. I picked the Nording kit from Pipes and Cigars because of the cool stem and I figured it would be a quality blank.

I got the nordCYOBENTx19.

Nording Carve Your Own Pipes-10

I used only simple hand tools: a saw, rasp, a couple of pocket knives, and sand paper.

Aside from the fact that with these tools briar may as well be marble, everything went pretty well.

It turns out to be the best smoking pipe I have.

After about 12 hours here's the result.

Nording Carve Your Own 01292010

I sandblasted it with a fine sand and rubbed it with a light grapeseed oil.

Thanks, and yes they do. it comes out significantly lower and more centered than most of my other pipes.

I will definitely be getting more of them.

Very cool. How many hours did it take you to finally get it to a point where you were happy with it?

I'd probably lose a finger, and thus jeopardize my career as a mediocre guitarist...

sounds like a plan!

a small entrance fee that would contribute towards a prize for the winner, determined by a simple poll. that would be great! might even turn into a tradition on this board.

but then, I would not be able to participate until I get home for the summer which is still months away... that's the real price you pay for education! Mad

Martin, taking off the big chunks with hand tools took about 4 or 5 hours. I don't have a vise at home, so work went a good deal slower there than on my lunch breaks at work (2 days @ 1 hour each).

Shaping took another couple of hours.

I'll say another 2 or 3 for sanding, piddling, and sandblasting.

The next one should go a bit faster since I have collected some tools and have an idea of what I'm doing now.

Needless to say, I now have a greater appreciation for the price of hand carved pipes!
