A while back I started thinking I would try my hand at making my own pipe. I started with pine (since everyone just has it laying around) and then got some cherrywood and curly maple. I ordered a bunch of MM bits and gave it a go. I don't have a band saw, lathe or sanding wheel so it's all hand drilling, table saw cutting and lots and lots of filing. But I like doing it and I don't think they're terrible.
