    Stone Pipes



    That's the first pipe. Nicely loaded with some Phoenix Lights. Pretty meds for a pretty pipe.

    Tough too. I dropped it from about four feet high onto concrete and it didn't break. it bounced a foot high, landed right on the end on the bowl.

    But this thread isn't about showing this pipe. It's about making this pipe. well, mostly about making other pipes, but this one too.

    12 have now been completed. Here's a few pics to kick it off, then over the next few days or so I'll bring it up to date.



    The red one has just been cleaned from lots of use. I just use hot water. cleans it like new.
    Never use vinegar or anything acidic on your stoneware.
    I don't like any kind of solvent either that might soak into the rock. Water works perfect.

    These are the last ones i've done. Soon they'll be given away.

      Subb'd, looks rugged. Having been "haunted" by stone pipe images for the last two weeks, specially volcanic ones and now end up here lol. Care to elaborate on this matter, or any kind of advice for folks who still don't have a "glass" culture around and have to try their own hand at things?

      Cheers

        Is the red pipe pipestone, from Minnesota?

        Other stones used?

          Hopefully not soapstone or asbestos-free. If soap stone, it'd break falling as mentioned. They look great!

              I'll start with a rock



              I'll hopefully answer any questions that have been asked or will be asked as I go. I still haven't thought through the best way to format this thread.

              I found the rock above, cut it and what looked like just a rock, was a nice uniform brownish, looks black when dry, brown - red when wet. layered, my guess is a mudstone. like sandstone but with finer particles, so it takes a polish.

              here it is with the basic shape drawn on it.



              Got a new blade for the water saw. I installed tile and stone in a previous life, so I have a Target tile saw with a 10" blade.

                  So we're talking just a basic 10" tile and stone saw?

                  Cool! (*I got my wife a saw of that sort with laser for her birthday last year. Like many 'gifts' I get for her, she may come home one day and find me using it now. ;^>) ).

                          black pipe


                          this is the one that had the bowl marked out rough shaped with the bowl drilled.


                          i use a 5/8 diamond sintered hole saw, then a 10mm hole saw, then a 5mm hole saw to drill out the middle. it's easier to pop out the chunkswith the extra drilling. the 5/8 plug is to big to pop out without breaking the edge of the bowl. so i break it out from the center.


                          Then i use a burr to grind out the chunks left. That^^ is a diamond sintered burr. I was using a worn out 5mm bit, but it took all day to grind out the bowl bottom, the sintered burr only takes an hour.

                          Sintered means that the diamonds are bonded in the metal, so as it wears new diamonds are exposed. the diamonds on the small 5mm diamond hole saws are electroplated on. but they cut beautifully till they wear out on the end.

                          here's me using a plated burr to round the bowl edges of a different pipe. i'll show you that one later, it is sweet.

                          on the right, that black/brown pipe all done.


                          What makes my pipes different than cheap Mexican pipes from Nogales or Chinese pipes from Amazon?

                          Mine are freehand cut and polished.

                          I polish the stem bore as good as i can for the tools i currently have.

                          I polish the inside of the bowl as good as i can for the tools i have currently.

                          that groove in the bottom. Mine.

                          The idea is that the stem hole should not just be drilled into the side of the bowl but under the bowl so it draws through the bottom of the bowl, so i ended up with the groove. it's a feature!

                          Hand made, with my grinder and drill press.

                          I have a 10" Wen drill press. cost me about 125.

                          I have assorted burrs, bits, hole saws, and flat lap discs.

                          On the tile saw i use a 10" granite blade. If you use a cheap ceramic tile blade a hard rock will kill it. must use granite blades.

                          I drilled the stem hole off center in that pipe above. oops.
                          so the groove is angled.

                          more to come

                              Seems that you've found more than a past-time or hobbie for yerself, specially after the health mishap, it's what we do of situations, you seem the livin' proof, everyday one more "step".

                              I will give it a try for fun at the workshop, for sure, I'm too good at breaking my glass constantly, seems I use it enough lol, If they end usable that's a win for me already eh?

                              Cheers, and happy festivities @paper thorn
