What you'll do

Just Like my other pipe class but for pocket pipes!

Instagram/mountainpupllc

You will start by picking out your wood blanks from an assortment of hardwoods, both natural and dyed that will be assembled during our workshop, cut, carved, engraved if you like, polished and finished into something you can really be proud of. At the end of the workshop feel free to bring your own tobacco or otherwise seeing as how this is Colorado.... and give your new pipe a try on the patio!

Feel free to bring a friend to observe for FREE! However seating is limited and prioritized for paying participants

work order will go:
-Pick your wood
-Design your shapes
-Assemble the blanks with glue and clamps
-Write down what you would like to have laser engraved into the pipe while we take a quick beer/wine break
-Sanding and finishing and engraving
-Enjoy your new creation!

The whole process will last roughly an hour and a half to two hours, we will be in my shop (Garage) the entirety of the work time and mainly 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 bring things to try with your new pipe after we are done or BYOB while we work as well. Just use common sense, we will be working with power tools that have sharp bits.
Other things to note
Any and all experience levels are welcome, I especially encourage folks who have never tried any wood working. I will always be there to help or step in if any step of the process makes you uncomfortable. I can often accommodate custom classes for specialty pipes, just shoot me a message anytime!

Hey All I'm John.


Based out of Colorado I hand make anything from custom steel signs, reclaimed wood furniture, knives and sheaths, electric guitars, Bluetooth stereos, to decorative wall art.

​I've been doing wood work since I was just a young boy helping out my father around the house,and recently have been able to pursue my dream of being able to bring what I make out to a broader audience through my own company Mountain Pup LLC (mountainpupllc.com) and now AirBnB experiences!

With my background in mechanical engineering and several years of industry experience as well as numerous certifications; I am able to merge my love of art, technology, and working with my hands to create one of a kind projects, and am now able to share my love of using these tools and creating unique items with you.

This was a well thought-out curated experience and I enjoyed myself as I was walked through the process. I found John to be knowledgeable and friendly. I would do this again just for the cool experience. This is a great event for out-of-town visitors as well as a cool thing to do on a lazy afternoon. 10/10

Definitely will be visiting John’s class again for another piece. It’s such a vibe and a cool place to meet new people, or get a to small group together. He teaches you step by step and lets you get used to the equipment before creating your masterpiece. If you’re a visual learner like I am you will love it! Also don’t forget to pack your stash because he lets you break that bad boy/girl in! 10/10 recommend

John was an excellent teacher! He made each instruction very easy to understand, and everything about the pipe making was very customizable. I also enjoyed that we were able to test out our pipes at the end of class. If I lived in CO, I definitely would go back again and again!
