Lumberjerks pipes
or at least MaFe’s.

Had a few pipe blanks standing on the workbench for a while, got them for a fair price last year and so the collected dust in the shop. It was the prefabricated type.
Wednesday I looked at them I figured it was time to send some smoke signals.
Always put a challenge in my projects, this one was that they should be; sensitive, elegant, masculine and with traces of the tools that made them – woodworkers pipes.
Tools, sanding to grit 1000, bruyére, wood dye different colors, oil, wax, patine wax and all that jazz.

1. The pipe basket on my workbench.
2. Four MaFe pipes, the second from top was made last year.
3. Different view.
4. In front one of the prefabricated blanks.
5. Rough details, high gloss finish.
6. Pipes and tools, how can I not love this.

Here another of my pipes:

The history of smoking:

Hope this can bring some inspiration, who knows, perhaps even smoke signals.

I’ve always wondered why a wooden pipe doesn’t just burn up.. ???

My pipe just got shown at the Gallery of the Danish pipe company P. E. Hermann, I broke the tip and had to make a new, in that way he saw a picture of it and asked if he could put it on the site, I was happy and proud to say yes.
He sells also international.

Your pipes are a great display of work. A few more and you can build a organ. LOL.

That’s a beautiful collection of pipes, Mads. I use to smoke a pipe back in my college days and really enjoyed it. I don’t know where my pipes went to. You do very nice work.

Well done.
