Fantastic post. That is awesome. 

Does the hammering over the 'mandrel' thicken or thin the copper?

That's pretty much how I do it, except since I usually use silver I start with sheet stock and roll my own pipe.  I will also usually make the end cap from a disk of silver and hard solder it rather than forging the whole thing, since that can be hard on a soldered joint.

Here's an early example of mine:

The methods used for making some Japanese sword fittings are well worth looking into...

I did a little digging and came across this video.
