To Make a Wooden Tobacco Pipe on a Lathe, you have to Place a 4-inch-long section of solid wood in the wood lathe and lock it in place. You need to turn on lathe on to start the wood spinning. After that, carve the wood piece with the chisels. Then, Sand the wood piece with 220-grit sandpaper once it is carved to your desired appearance. You must turn off the lathe and remove the wood from the machine.
Next, Place the 1 1/2-inch by 2-inch section of wood into the lathe. You should secure the wood in place and turn on the lathe to start it spinning. Forth, carve the wood to your desired appearance with the chisels. After that, Sand the bowl to a smooth finish with the 220-grit sandpaper once it is carved completely. You can turn off the lathe and remove the wood from the machine.
Then, Place the wood bowl section on a flat surface. You have to grip it to the surface with a strong clamp. You need to cut a circle into the bowl to make a place for tobacco with the circle cutter bit on the drill. Next, Turn the wood bowl section to a standing position and clamp back down to the surface. Forth, drive the circle cutter at an angle through the base of the wood bowl.
You must leave about 1/8 to ¼ inch of wood along the bottom. You should drive this hole approximately ¼ inch into the side of the wood bowl. After that, remove the bowl section from the clamp. You can enter the tapered end of the mouth piece section into the side cut hole. You have to gently tap the end on a solid surface to make a tight fit between the two wood sections.
Then, Switch the circle cutter bit to the 1/8-inch drill bit. You need to drive a 1/8-inch hole all over the length of the mouthpiece section so that the end of the bit protrudes into the circle cut into the body of the bowl.
