Behold, the FlutterPipe!

I enjoy carving pipes from time to time, and thought I would try my hand at engraving everyone's favorite shy pony. Also, Flutterpipe is best pipe ;)

This is my first post, hope everypony enjoys

I carved it from a solid block of mediterranean briar. It is quite large and has a good weight to it.

Oh, man. I really want one of these. It's so much nicer than the Cherrywood one I've been using. Plus, best poni is on it!

Thanks! As it happens, my latest Queen Chrysalis pipe will go on auction for Kiki's cancer fund, signed by none other than Tara Strong herself. Based on interest garnered in that, I may go ahead and sell my other pony pipes. They may not incorporate the Peterson method, but it is mighty fine briar none the less :)

Keep me posted if you decide to start selling! I've been using this same pipe for five years now, and it's about time to upgrade. :D

NICE! But I don't think Fluttershy would like what I would smoke out of it though...

Well you did it Fluttershy is now a tree. That craftsmanship is amazing, I really like the branch formation on the side.

It would be awesome if you make more of these.

would you commission pony pipes? This is a masterpiece

Unfortunately I have neither the time, nor the skill. :( School keeps me far too busy (80hr weeks suck!), and I am at best amateur at pipe making. I would not feel right accepting commissions knowing that it would be anything short of flawless.

That aside, I am always open to new ideas :)
I wanted to make a rainbow dash pipe, but couldn't think of a cool enough way to make the clouds look

I too would pay a hefty amount for such a pipe. As far as flaws, forgettaboutit. If it's halfway as far up on the perfection scale as that one in the pic I'd be okay with that.

I personally would pay good money for a Rarity pipe. She is my favorite and the way I see it, pipes are classy and befitting of a classy lady such as Rarity. If you ever do decide to open up commissions let me know, because you may not think it but I can see you've got some skill at this. All that matters is that you have fun doing it though so if you don't wanna do commissions then feel free to keep posting your beautiful creations here :)

ahh, it is briar. man, you could definitely get a pretty penny off of that
rottyscoots's avatar
wow, thats quite the piece! and is that briar wood?
also, i might just have to finish my idea for a pony hookah haha
Knolmar's avatar
Definitely original....

Pony pipes? That's a new one. Awesome idea, though! :)
I would start smoking just to use this.
Belgarath81's avatar
if you don't mind me asking, what did you use to carve this? I've been wanting to try and carve something myself.
ArgtheAvatar's avatar
I used a dremel with some very fine tips, as well as some small files and steel wool... oh, and time... far too much time

Yay! my tobacco paraphernalia wasn't rejected by EQD : )
