    Yeah Nina thought it was two pieces too. Yeah it was fun to make and not difficult at all. I'll probably make a few to offer here if anyone is interested.

    I'd be interested if you decide to make some.

    Do you have a wood preference bud?

    The red cedar is kind of symbolic.

    Video I did today of making a tobacco pipe (bush pipe). If you're only interested in seeing the pipe made and not the details that go into the design and wood selection you can skip to 33:55 of the video. :dblthumb:

    Greetings,

    I am very much interested.

    I know from personal experience that shipping overseas can be a pain in the posterior in many ways. Would it be possible for me to be included with the understanding that I will assume postage/shipping cost to the UK?

    Absolutely no worries at all if you'd rather not. :)

    On a separate note, I like your new video. No need to apologise for the length of it. As far as I am concerned, all of it is useful. For me half the job in learning how to do something new is understanding the context and your video covers that as well as the actual making of the pipe.

    Regards,

    Christos

    Thank you brother! If you could help me figure out how to correctly fill out the customs forms I'd be glad to send you one.

    All one solid piece of cedar (no glue joints) turned on the lathe.

    Thank you brother! I can't decide whether I like the odd shaped base on them better or a more concentric base.

    Do the non-concentric pieces require more work?

    No not at all. With eastern red cedar it's harder to find concentric sections to make them from but there's no difference in difficulty between the two as far as making them.

    I got some of these from Tim for family members, they are quite unique, and really beautiful. They would make a really nice gift for a relative or friend. Tim does such amazing work, thank you!

    Using a different browser to try to figure out my photo uploading issues.

    A rough turned natural edge bowl from Box Elder.

    Apparently it's a Firefox issue which doesn't surprise me since it's happened once before.

    It's been a rough couple of weeks with the narcolepsy but today I was finally able to stay conscious long enough to go to the shop and get some work done on a couple of birch Carve-A-kuksas. I haven't seen a neurologist in about 4 yrs (I've not had very good luck with them) but I've got an appointment with one next week. Trying to keep my head up but this stuff is really getting old!!!

    Anyway, I enjoyed my time in the shop today.

    Greetings,

    Please keep on enjoying your shop time, for I enjoy it too, through you. Some beautiful creations there with the cups. What oil are you coating them with?

    Thank you brother! I only use 100% pure tung oil (which is food safe), I buy it by the gallon but you can get it in smaller sizes.

    Another birch kuksa in the works. This one will be in the neighborhood of 10-12 oz and has nice thin walls so it will be very light for a kuksa of this size.

    A little fine tuning, sanding, removed the tenons and another coat of tung oil on the three kuksas today.

    The two on the left are Carve-A-Kuksas for a customer, the one on the right will be a finished kuksa that I'll have available when finished. All but the last three photos were taken while they were still wet with tung oil.
