I have a life long friend going way back to secondary school days I E from 12 years on, who has been really like a brother to me sometimes more so.
Anyway he has been helpful to my son and I have found a very nice piece of wood, it is a very heavy hardwood, and is not known to me at all.
I sent off and bought several of the mouthpieces thinking I could never make one. I found out it is a type of plastic of which I have a lot of it anyway its the top piece which I am currently interested in just now.
He will want a heavy duty sheer-luck homes type if I know him. I also bought the correct router piece for scooping out the inside neatly ,which is a round nose piece.
If anyone here has actually made one! Could they kindly tell me what the typical problems to be encountered might be. your old pal BI AL Alistair

Allison, there was a Pipe Swap back in 2014 where you will find lots of info and/or members to help with your project.

“Sheer-luck Homes.” You’re funny, Alistair. I really didn’t know what you talking about, til I read Candy’s reply to “Allison,” whoever that is. Candy’s funny, too. Have you seen any of Mafe’s hand-carved poipes? (I did that on purpose, cause I’m fluent in Scottish.)

Pipes should be made from Briar if wooden (for the bowel). All else will have less than desirable results (wood + Fire = not just tobacco burning).

Google Mediterranean Briar.

Its hard.

Then worry about the mouth pieces.

Hi could someone tell me is it possible to use different coloured woods layered together, and if so is there any danger from toxins in the glue used? I started mixing a bit of two part epoxy today and when I looked down it was smoking, and I don’t mean a pipe either LOL .
I had to look again but yes smoke coming of the top layer of the mixed out glue.. Alistair

Scotsman…

You’re worried about Toxins from Glue?!

What do think about the tobacco, that is burned in the Pipe, of the Deadly Toxins it contains? :) LOL :)

... Priorities studied… ?

LOL

Good Luck…

I quit smoking a pipe when I couldn’t take a deep breath for a chest X-Ray!
... cold turkey… I asked myself… “What would I rather do… smoke or Breathe?” ... Case rested!

Yes Joe , but this guy surprisingly to me has smoked now for many years cigarettes. I think the present theory is smoking a pipe and not really inhaling it too much will be safer. I assume he is in his own MIND to old now for it to be of any good to quit. I fervently disagree with this. A lot of people smoke marijuana and this has been scientifically proven to be much less dangerous than tobacco .Governments don’t stop tobacco as it seems more difficult to get from seed to finished product than a weed which will grow anywhere and they can’t seem to stop the misuse .Look up Noam Chomsky and his article on tobacco free to purchase marijuana illegal, on YOUTUBE yet marijuana has never caused any deaths from inhaling smoking whereas tobacco kills around one third of the people in the world or used to now it seems to be a lot more unpopular. My both boys smoked for a while not heavily they have stopped a long time a go Alistair my eldest son still feels the need to continue buying the chewing gum to stop you from smoking go figure. They say tobacco is much harder to stop taking smoking than heroin. That surprised me an old guy who has never been interested in smoking and certainly never drinking alcohol. Alistair

When he finds out he has trouble taking a deep breath for a chest x-ray & the x-ray doesn’t work because of it, HE WILL STOP!

I smoked cigarettes for many many years… when they got to 50 cents a pack, I went to a PIPE… and yes I inhaled too…

I am SO GLAD I QUIT! I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER!
