Hey everyone, i just started making pipes and for my first attempt i used some cherry wood, i could only find a plank of the cherry so i had to glue/laminate two pieces together to get a good size block to make the pipe from. I chose to do this as a way to get good practice working on hardwood for pipes rather than ruining expensive briar blocks since i am drilling the bowl and airhole myself. My first attempt worked out very well the bowl and airhole line up nicely in the centre, and I am wondering if it would be safe to actually smoke from this pipe even though it is from 2 glued pieces? It was just gorilla glue i used to laminate the wood, has anyone ever used a pipe that was from 2 pieces glued together then shaped? any help appreciated thanks.
