i'm making a sorry attempt at a pipe for a late christmas present for my brother.

but i'm wondering how i'll glue on the stem to the bowl, i don't think epoxy will work, wont it melt when you smoke it?


also, would a antler tip work for a stem?

sorry about the n00bish questions. :ph34r:

From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

Howdy, J!


The stem is not glued to the bowl, it's a mortise-and-tenon arrangement. Check out the forum at www.pipemakersforum.com to get a better idea of how it all works. Basically you drill a hole and stick the end of the stem into it. It's tough to do well without a lathe, but it can be done.


Antler can work, as long as it isn't in contact with the tobacco. It stinks when it burns... :wacko:;)
