I’ve purchased a few of these at gift shops here in Arizona & Colorado, but never really thought they were very authentic looking, at least not hand made like you might expect. So I made one of my own. Black & White Ebony. About 3 hrs in time. Yes it works, whatta ya think?

Yes, like any woodturning piece of yours, it is very nice and well done project but I dont like anything related to smoking. I am an anti-smoking campaigner. Thank you for sharing.

To follow up on Sam’s truly inspiring declaration of his anti smoking beliefs, i think this is a peace pipe fit for Hairy Moccasins himself

Arizona is one of three states that surround the largest Indian reservation in North America. There is a lot of Navajo tradition here & I am more than slightly consumed with it, hence the southwestern influence in my work. Sam: I am not a smoker. I also am turned off at the prospect of smoking. I did however indulge myself with smoking in the 60’s, but can’t really tell you what Chesterfield is.

Chris yes you are right The Pipe out dates Tobacco, cannabis was used before tobacco, And I wouldn’t doubt that corn was also smoked before tobacco

About pipes what you sad is not right !!!!

We had a number of plant that we use for ceremony’s and for healing and I can not tall you all of them because if you use some of them wrong you can make you suck Or to much can kill you .
As for some of the native put west they use some plant in ceremony’s that can get you high and Tv. has play this up as native just using drugs to get high
Sorry to say some kids likes do this Native and white and black and yellow .
But the way of the pipe was not to get high like you are thanking or like the old west show show you and I’m sorry to say I here this alot. I’m not mad at you but just wanted to let you know whet you thank you know is not right .

Indian Joe: You might want to tell your story and believes to the Indian Historical folks, because they think contrary to what you are saying. That cannabis was used though be it for ceremonial purposes, and as you say not for just the buss of getting high. Do a little research on the Native American Indian and you will see that. After all it is History that is all we have to go on. Quoting something that I’ve heard in a movie, is a little insulting.

I agree on the wood choice. Maybe consider slightly charring the inside to give it the look of having been used but as a display piece that isn’t really necessary.
