What you'll do

We will be making one of a kind wooden pipes from scratch!

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!

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 let the glue cure for a few minutes and take a quick beer/wine break
-Cut out pipe shape from assembly
-Sanding and finishing and engraving
-Enjoy your new creation!

We will be in my shop (Garage) the entirety of the work time and almost the entirety of the class 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 or blades on them

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. 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 and 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 my love of using these tools and creating unique items with you.

My boyfriend and I are so happy we decided to do this as one of our experiences while being in Denver for the first time. John is so friendly and knowledgeable in wood shop and created such a cool, unique experience that we will never forget! John was really good about explaining how to complete each step but then not hovering too much so you feel like you actually created the piece on your own. I will be recommending this to friends traveling to Denver in the future!!

This was an absolutely amazing experience. John is friendly and super knowledgeable. His main goal is to make you feel comfortable and create something you love. He’s supportive while also letting you have complete creative control. I had the opportunity to be more one on one with him, and I couldn’t be more glad that he decided to offer this experience to others. In just one conversation, you can tell the passion he has for what he does and wanting to give others that same feeling. I cannot wait to come back and do this again!

This was one of the coolest things I've experienced. I left with a new found passion for creating wooden projects and a lot of little bits of knowledge from John. He walked me through the process step-by-step and made me feel very comfortable with my limited knowledge. He also provided some great conversation and music, plus I left with an awesome, functional souvenir.

This was an amazing experience. Our son signed us up as a birthday gift for his dad. We were made to feel welcome from the beginning. John is a wonderful host. He is patient and easy going for those of us who have little experience in woodworking. I would do this again.
