What you'll do

We will be making one of a kind wood and resin Pocket Pipes from scratch! No kits here! 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 -Write down/draw out what you would like to have laser engraved into the pipe while we 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

John

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.
