Thought I'd make a pipe
« on: November 07, 2013, 06:52:17 PM »
Had an idea for a while about making a pipe style mod , decided to go for something simple so I decided to use the auto switch and part of the casing from a SD mini and the guts from a 900mah ego as I wanted a bit more life from it . Next up was sourcing the wood , I knew I wanted walnut so when I was in Czech Republic last month I got chatting to some one who as it turned out that was Interested in ecigs and I told them about the idea I had for a epipe and they pointed me in the direction of a place that made handmade items from wood. I took a walk over and they very kindly gave me some off cuts of walnut free of charge .

This is what it started with ...


Turned it on the lathe ...


Also made a matching pipe stand...







I've been polishing it up to 12k MM and I've given it several coats of jewellers rouge  (probably give it a few more yet)...



Vape's really well and Is comfortable to use , managed a fair few hours battery life from it to .

ive got a mod thats a piece of wood, it takes a 18350 and has a brass button with a spring like the pipe buttons and an ego connector
i will never use it but if you want it so you can use the bits out of it you are welcome (the woods useless)
it was a gift from todd ages ago and i would rather give it some one who could make use of it in a way i never could
