What you'll do

We will be making one of a kind wood and resin Pocket Pipes from scratch! No kits here!

Instagram/mountainpupllc

This will be a similar class to wooden pocket pipes, however we use many new tools and manufacturing processes!


You will start by picking out your wood blanks for your bowl as well as our hybrid stem blanks that will be assembled during our workshop, cut, carved, engraved if you like, polished and finished into something you can really be proud of. Of Course we have to try them out so feel free to bring tobacco or otherwise since this is Colorado...and give them a try!

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
-Assemble the blanks with glue and clamps
-Use the drill press to prep our bowls
-Carve, sand, shape the pipes
- take a quick beer/wine break
-Engrave our pipes
-Enjoy your new creation!

We will be in my shop (Garage) the entirety of the work time and most of the class primarily 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 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 time slots as well, 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, 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, after only offering what I made as gifts to family and friends, 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, several years of industry experience; 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 these tools and creating unique items with you.

we found this experience on a whim right before our trip and we were not disappointed. John was so nice and accommodating while we built our pipes. would definitely take other classes with him and I would recommend everyone try this class atleast once! 😁

Awesome class! I had no woodworking skills at all and was nervous I was going to have trouble but John was awesome at explaining and helping. Highly recommend!

So glad I booked this experience! John's workshop is very clean and organized. He is a great teacher and made me feel confident trying new tools. My piece came out better than I could imagine. Can't wait to try it 😊

We had an awesome experience for my boyfriend’s birthday, since this class was a surprise for him. John played along with me wanting to celebrate, and even gifted my boyfriend an amazing bottle opener that we’re super excited about! I would absolutely recommend this course, even during COVID-19. John does a great job of making sure you are safe and feel confident to use all of the tools as well. You get tons of great souvenirs in the form of a pipe and photo, and the memory to go along with it! Thank you John!

The pipe building with John was a great experience. His shop is organized and user friendly. His process is defined and simple for both beginners or experienced work workers. If visiting the area, put this on your list of things to do!
