Image No.4 of Moustache May Pipe. Step Three: I use a Disc Sander because it's more efficient, however one could use a dremel to begin shaping the pipe. Before one gets too close to where you should stop, it is very important to ensure the stem fits in the shank. In most cases the stem is too big, so drilling the smoke hole is necessary. Here we see the pipe taking its rough form. (Important Notes: Do not work on shaping the pipe with the stem in it, you could / will damage the stem. Additionally remember this is a takeaway art.)

I need to do this someday. It looks like much satisfying fun. Edwards tobacco here in FL sells the blanks similar to what you are using. I can't wait to see your progression.

I feel like if you pre-sold a few of these limited edition, you could make a few bucks here from fellow moustachers. I know you say you want to keep it in the family, but this could be an awesome opportunity...think about it!

Klickastache says:
@justjamey The business in the family...I'll sell pipes to whoever wants to buy!
