Wood pipes can be made with minimal tools. These pipes are made with just a Jigsaw, drill and drill press.
You will also need some glue, clamps, hole saws, nuts and a threaded rod.
To start cut some blocks with a jigsaw, they don't have to be square or exact, just larger than the hole saw you will be using.
The blocks are doubled up and glued together. Only two can be glued at a time. This will work best for the the depth of the hole saw.
So far this is from four blocks.
I made a Big sandpaper board for sanding. Even though I made this for this project this is great for other uses around the shop. It has 80 and 150 grit paper.
Now the next centers can be drilled out. After I did this I was able to make the second pipe.
A simple clamp can be made with a threaded rod and some end caps.
Threaded rods can be purchased at any hardware store, they come in 4' lengths and cost only a few dollars.
Now with the cordless drill place the threaded rod in the block and with the big sand paper board start sanding......
.....the other way is to put it in the drill press. Sandpaper strips can also be used. With a shoe shine method start with some coarse paper and move to finer grits until you get your desired finish.
Two wood pipes are complete and they turned out great. They are very accurate and I especially like the finish. Using the hole saw makes it easy to make many different sizes.
These pipes are 1 ft. long
Now what can I make using these pipes??
