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.

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.

If you're looking for a unique experience with a one-of-a-kind souvenir, this is it! John is super knowledgeable and structures the class to give you a sense of confidence that brings out your best creative work. It's no wonder why folks from all over the US come out to take his classes. Would highly recommend his class if you want a memorable CO trip!

Me and my boyfriend went and had a great time. He had everything we needed and when I messaged him before the class he got back to me right away! He also had things like grinders and lighters which we didn’t have so that was much appreciated!

I left class feeling like Lumber Jane who can build anything! If my fiance would've let me, I would've taken John's class again and again for the rest of our vacation. My pipe turned out so cute and works amazingly well. Can't wait to get back to Denver to take this class again.

Such a fun experience! John has an amazing set up and provides easy instruction and mastered the design to create a well working pipe. We had a blast getting created, good music, and fun atmosphere.
