Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I could say I finished a project, but with the warmer weather moving in, I can once again spray outside.
For several years now, I’ve been a collector of miniature tobacco pipes…each one measures at, or under 3” in length…most think they were cigarette holders…doesn’t matter…I think they are neat. Problem was that I couldn’t find a display for them, but knew that I could make one.
I think the wood is either oak or hickory…not 100% sure…I only know that I saved it from a burn pile.
I removed the bark, but left the live edge, used a forstner bit and various Dremel bits to hollow out and applied a Danish oil finish with a top coat of lacquer and then finished it with a light coat of wax.
Only issue I have at the moment is that since beginning this project, I have acquired more of the little pipes, so I guess I’ll have to start on the next one!
Hope you like it!
