I wonder if one you talented pipe makers could make me a nice pipe with my wings on it like this one?

You fund the CNC laser and I'll make the pipe.

EDIT: In related news, the price of CNC lasers is dropping like a stone. The last indie craft show I went to in KC had perhaps 20 vendors of wood products that had been laser engraved. From coasters with ducks to jigsaw puzzles to step stools with pictures of your baby. Unfortunately, most of the offerings followed the path of church bulletins in the late 80's when desktop publishing made it possible for people with no graphic skills at all to throw all the 'professional' bells and whistles at a single document. Simply owning a tool doesn't make one proficient with it. Sometimes (ofttimes) the skill of a designer is know when not to use his bag of tricks.

Boswell was offering laser engraving services at one point. I'm not sure if he still does it though.

If you're going to do it with N8 then you better do it quick. I don't know where their laser will land after they close shop.

RHOX pipes has one too. That's JMG & Tu. Tu has offered to engrave pipes for me so he may do it for you too.
