A buddy of mine likes to partake in smoking a pipe from time to time (the brown tobacco, not the green tobacco). In consideration of making a gift for his upcoming birthday, I was thinking about taking a shot at carving out a pipe and turning the mouthpiece on the lathe.
I have a piece of figured cherry that would work out just terrific, and I was considering using an Acrylic pen blank for the mouthpiece.
Has anyone attempted or succeeded in making something like this? I’m looking for any advice… What about the acrylic pen blanks? would those work or would they be considered to ”toxic”? Realizing that Toxic, of course, is a relative term anytime you’re talking about smoking or tobacco use….
