We will be making one of a kind wood and resin Pocket Pipes!
This will be a similar class to wooden pocket pipes, however we use many new tools and manufacturing processes!
You will start by picking out your wood blanks for your bowl and a hybrid blank for your stem that will be assembled during our workshop, cut, carved, engraved if you like, polished and finished into something you can really be proud of. Of Course we have to try them out so feel free to bring tobacco or otherwise since this is Colorado...and give them a try!
work order will go:
-Pick your wood
-Assemble the blanks with glue and clamps
-Use the drill press to prep our bowls
-Carve, sand, shape the pipes
-Write down/draw out what you would like to have laser engraved into the pipe while we let the glue cure for a few minutes and take a quick beer/wine break
-Engrave our pipes
-Enjoy your new creation!
We will be in my shop (Garage) the entirety of the work time and almost the entirety of the class you will be using a rotary tool with an extension attachment (makes it like using a pen to carve/sand rather than holding the entire tool). I will have music playing and examples for ideas, like I mentioned feel free to BYOB while we work as well. Just use common sense, we will be working with power tools that have sharp bits or blades on them
We will be in my workshop the entirety of the class. This shop has professional tools in it such as industrial grade laser cutter/engraver, CnC router, CnC Plasma cutter, drill press, band saw, scroll saw, table saw, miter saws, drum sanders, belt sanders, disc sanders, dremels, planers, Stereo system, dust filtration, dust collection systems..all sorts of fun stuff. Though we wont need to use most of these tools to create our Pipes.
