PostSubject: My new Pipe Tampers...   Mon Jan 25, 2010 1:21 am

Well I finally have a way to make Pipe Tamers that I am very pleased with...

Instead of using a ammo shell casing for the tamp heads I now am using a metal head. This one is in 24kt, I will have others in a few weeks (Gunmetal, Copper and Nickel) This one is 3 inches tall with a 3/8 tamp head. It is made of Afzelia Burl. I still am working out ideas for a removable portion for a poker...

Also in the future I would like to try acrylics as well.

I enjoy being able to share my hobby of woodworking and creating unique smoking accessories for all of you.

Please let me know you thoughts on these.

I think it's a gorgeous tamper. I like natural materials for tampers for some reason. The acrylics are nice but never appeal to me like those that are made of something more earthy.

It's a great look, form and function. Those exotic woods make a tamper special, and using the metal head instead of a shell casing puts it in a different class. Nice work,,,

Very excellent looking tamper, if I may say so myself. I also agree that the natural materials look far superior.

I was lucky enough to get a cocobolo tamper from Troy. He is fantastic craftsman. Now if we can only talk him into pipe racks......
