Step 1: You Will Need...
- 1 Block of Bruyere wood
- 1 ferule
- different kind of grater
- a saw
- a drill with different gimlets (Hand auger)
- one circle
- a Dremel like tool
- sand paper
- milling cutter min. 18 mm
- time (you will need a lot of it)
- a idea
Step 2: The Idea
Step 3: Forming the Raw Block of Wood
Draw the top of the pipe's inner circle and an outer one; these will mark the hole for the tobacco and outside shape of the pipe.
Then draw on the sides of the block of wood the design you have chosen. Now work it out (It should mean that now you have to catch your tools and begin to work :) Your block of wood should look now similar to the one in the picture.
Step 4: Drilling the Holes
As you can see in the picture you have to measure out how deep you have to drill the hole for the tobacco. Be careful the walls of the tobacco chamber are not to thinly constructed. If they are, the heat is going to destroy your chamber.
The walls of this pipe are 8 mm thick. The tobacco chamber has a diameter of 18 mm. and is 3 cm deep.
In the end all measurements depend on the design which you have chosen for your pipe.
Next you are going to make the hole for the mouth piece which will connect the mouth piece to the tobacco chamber. Carefully drill first the hole for the mouth piece. I used a 7 mm drill. Then change the drill to a smaller one, I used a 3 mm. Now make test fit the connection of the mouthpiece to the chamber.
Step 5: Rounding
Step 6: Sandpaper Work
Step 7: Nearly Done
The pipe isn't ready to be used yet. You have to seal and polish the wood still. However I still need to write an Instructable of how to seal and polish the wood. For now you have done a good job in making your pipe.
