In this tobacco pipe making video series I show the steps that go into making one of my Danish style pipes. The actual pipe made in this video series is shown in the picture.
Pipe makers have different ways of doing the same thing. You may see other videos where something is done completely different. Most of what I know I’ve figured out on my own over the years though I have gleamed some good information from https://pipemakersforum.com/. I had a few objectives in making this latest video series. One goal was to show pipe enthusiast one way of making a tobacco pipe and all the steps that go into it. The second goal was to show new pipe makers some of the steps and to show different ways on making a pipe to current hobby pipe makers. I do not claim to be an expert in pipe making, but I think I can help some people learn new techniques if they’re starting out or are stuck trying to figure out a step.

Note that I will be making a few more videos showing how to drill a pipe using a drill press. In this video series I use a metal lathe for drilling. I realize a lot of people don’t have one since it’s not a common tool. Although I believe a metal lathe is the most precise way to drill and face a block you can make amazing pipes without a metal lathe. All of my pipes were made with a drill press until 2020.
