Finally got around to taking pictures of the jewelry box I made for my wife at Christmas. It’s from the last of the wood I built our dining room table out of. The interior is black walnut.

I love it! And I’m sure she does :grinning:

Question for you. I’m thinking about making a pipe with some aged apple wood branches. It’ll be a short pipe as I don’t have a long drill bit but I’m fairly sure I can do it. Your thoughts would be appreciated :slightly_smiling_face:


#190

Can you find a really long screw? If so, drill as far as you can, and then use the screw. Is apple wood very hard?


#191

I really don’t know if it’s considered a hard wood but I have found a couple of handcrafted applewood pipes online so I’m pretty sure I can make one. Depending on how you make it you drill 2-3 connecting bores then carve out the bowl. You want to keep the inside bore as smooth as possible so I’m iffy about using a long nail or screw. :thinking:. I’m also wondering if someone else here has made handmade wooden pipes :grinning:. Hmmm maybe @garrigan65


#192

Can you make it so the stem is a separate piece? If so, you could select a small branch for that and drill from both ends. Then whittle it to fit to the bowl.

Apple is a hardwood. That said it’s not VERY hard or dense. Briarwood for pipes is root burl for example.

That’s what I would likely do if I were making one.

Sorry to read this @aussie123556, hang in there friend, call someone if you need to. I’ve been where you may be at and the silence is deafening. Reach out if you need to Man. Peace.

Chopin Nocturne Op.55 No.1 By Arthur Rubinstein (15/154) i listened to this about 50 times today,don’t know why my memory remembers 1000notes plus of this song but not whr my lighter is :frowning: lol


#196

Wow! That’s a FINE piece of work, Alan!


#197

Are you in S. Australia? Hopefully not, looks like the folks there are getting some nasty fires, just like California recently. Stay safe!


#198

Hang in there! We’re all of us damaged here so we understand.

@Myfriendis410 Thanks for your input. I have had this wood for a few years as it was going to be a walking stick. I could make it multiple pieces but I kinda wanted to make it a one piece. I’m heading out soon but will try to find a pic of my idea later. Thanks again :hugs:

Those Chopin nocturnes are beautiful and possess the power to evoke deep emotions. I love the way he always changed tempo and volume.
