Got a wild hair looking at wood grain while making dowels for a press I'm working on, and while watching shows in the evenings I came up with this. My first play at Vulcanite stem bending too...





Kinda funky, I know...... It draws nice though. Going to load it tonight and see what happens....

I like it Ozzy. Like it a LOT!

Did you make the bowl as well?

Cool



Cheers,

Yuppers, made the bowl, started threading the stem and it was troublesome to thread to the end, so I added a piece of maple to the bowl with a slightly larger diameter hole so the stem would fit through. The end of the stem has about 3/8" of threads on the end going into the neck of the bowl, so it still holds and can be taken apart if needed. I then rusticated the bowl and polished it...

I might have a new 'bender' on my pipe making.......

Kewl. What's the bowl material? Looks like Briar.

Way great pics Ozzy. And never heard of Ironwood used for a pipe until now. Looks quite like briar.

Cool



Cheers,

RR

Is ironwood cheaper than briar?

I have a snare drum carved from an ironwood log made in the land down-under, it cost me a small fortune.

I don't know what iron wood costs, I did a barter/trade with a wood carver that wanted some of the types I had. I guess the use of the word 'exotic' is subjective.

Better than I thought it would honestly. The hole in the Vulcanite stem is pretty small, and I was apprehensive whilst giving it the bend. Cooking rabbit in a pan on the gas range, I used the ambient heat near the bottom of the pan to soften it. I had to bend it twice as well, due to the fact I just grabbed it up and bent it, then went to screw it into the neck and found I had bent it upside down..... Sometimes I crack myself up. Always a new learning curve here!

Cracking pics Wiz. You look in your element.

How did you machine the draught hole? In from the bowl and in from the shank?

Yes Sir, that was the only way I could figure it out at the time. Using an eighteen volt cordless DeWalt drill/driver. And steady hand using my best eye....

Nice carving Ozark!  cheers  cheers  cheers

That's another pipe you have made from bow wood. There is a bow manufacturer in your neck of the woods, that makes a fantastic bow out of Ironwood.

Glad it's a good smoker Ozzie, I'm always worried about gurgling with such heavily bent pipes.

Cheers
