TwoXseveN Pipes

Post by TwoXseveN » Sun Nov 19, 2017 10:43 pm

Well hello ya’ll

I started making pipes (for real) just a few short weeks ago and documented it here on the forum.

I am no expert, but am enjoying learning the craft and am officially open for business.

I’m primarily starting this thread as an opportunity to get in on early action while I am still quite a novice maker...



For reference, this is blind attempt #1/ground zero:

After learning quite a bit, this is what I say is my my first real attempt:

I am currently working on #2 and this is the status:

I am truly enjoying learning the process of pipe making and would delight in nothing more than to sell my early work to CPS members at a vastly discounted rate.

I do have several commissions from non CPS members but am hoping to grow the arsenal within the CPS bounds if the demand is plausible...



I have 5 more pipes for sale for less than $90.

The reason for this is to get value out of the work I put in but, primarily learn as I go and have the opportunity to get more briar.


Aka, this is a call to all those who may want a novice/discounted artisan pipe while I build a portfolio!




If you have any desire, feel feee to send me a private message and/or comment right here in the forum!

I saw and held this pipe yesterday. That's right. I fondled it. And boy howdy, did I like it.
