Unsure of the toxicities of white oak, maybe none, just be careful what you make them out of, don't want you or anyone else getting sick. Briar and Olive wood are perfect for pipes and readily available. Wink

just do a simple google search many people sell them make them and use them all the time I smoke one every day


While Briar pipes are by far the most common wooden pipes, a wide range of other woods have been used. Times in which briar is scarce or completely unavailable (war, economic depression, etc.) have prompted curious carvers to explore the properties of less expensive and more abundant materials. While softer, less porous or more susceptible to burning than briar, a temporary solution is often better than not smoking at all. The following woods have been used for smoking pipes to various extents:


Maple, Cherry, Black Walnut, Oak, Olive, Rosewood, Manzanita, Mesquite-wood, Beech, Hickory, Mountain Laurel, Mahogany, Ebony


I have done my research

Each of the woods listed will also provide a very distinct flavor profile to the smoke as well. I'm quite partial to the flavor black walnut gives my cobs when I plug the bottoms with it. I didn't realize anyone used mesquite but I expect it would be phenomenal with lat blends.

Please post pics of your creations in the DIY section I'm sure you'll get plenty of feed back on your shaping and proportions etc.
