Adam Davidson, U.S.A.

by Luca di Piazza


Our visit to Adam Davidson was just a couple of days before the Richmond Show and he was finishing a few pipes to bring there. In the next pictures you can see a little of how Adam's make his beautiful Bamboo shank pipes.

Adam selects the right piece of bamboo

Drilling the air hole in the piece of bamboo

Facing one of the sides of the bamboo

Cutting the steel tube for the junctions

Sanding the tube a little bit

Connecting the bowl to the Bamboo shank

The funny way Adam has to check the right proportion for the mouthpiece

Drilling the ebonite mouthpiece

Drilling the slot

Modelling the first part of the mouthpiece

Adam models and refines his mouthpieces totally by hands

Refining the lips
