Gosh it’s been go go go here since the move getting settled in and getting the shops back in full operation. Has been quite an exciting time past, present and wow what’s to come.
Starting off with the WoodScents heater upgrade that I will be releasing in the first part of September. For the past few months I have been trying this, testing that. Have gone over what I felt was too much then back to where it’s just right. The new heaters going out will be a 40% increase across the entire temp scale with a bit more on the high end. They still max out in about 5 minutes with a bit more on the high end at 750-760. This is the temp across the heater itself. All settings across the scale have increased so pay close attention to the temp scale in your paperwork with the new units.
I am sure there will be many questions about this change and will do my best to answer any and all as best I can.
Did this beauty live edge Amboyna Burl 2 tone piece for a good guy as a custom job and his first WS. Bench tested and handled the new heater very well.
I also have some glass coming for the WS tip that can be used as a bubbler and nectar collector
made in America from my glass guy who does amazing work you all are aware of. I look to have these in had in the next couple weeks so may work out that they are available same time as the new batch of WS.
Have also gotten my hands on a few pieces of Honduran Rosewood Burl large enough for a WS. I have been doing this for almost 13 years now and have only been able to obtain this a couple times or so. the time or two I was it wasn’t large enough, when it was it cost $800 a blank and just couldn’t bring myself to purchase it. These weren’t nearly that expensive but were a long way from cheap.
I will be turning these very soon. Gotta give you all a heads up these will be expensive, more than I have ever charged for a WS and probably a lot more than you would think but will tell say will be worth every penny and a truly an heirloom piece that will sit atop all others ever made. have 3 left in this and if anyone would like to nail one down get at me and let’s do so.
Not sure how many follow me at Instagram, if you don’t hey pls do https://www.instagram.com/eds_tnt_/ got a couple great videos saved from Ryan of Rastabuddhatoa doing a session having brought in the WS. Like how he uses his and is very similar to my technique and felt it might be helpful to post here
also, 420VapeZone and Eric from Boundless vapes doing a dueling WoodScents live stream a bit back that I grabbed. Was a good time had by them and myself just watching. Shows them using em with other various stems and such. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Really excited to tell you all about the upcoming 3rd annual Make A Wish Raffle/Fundraiser I have coming up the entire month of November. I have gotten with 7 other guys very well known in the industry all working together to make up the greatest grand prize ever. I can assure you its way larger than last years and for one person will be like winning the lottery. One of the guys is throwing in a dozen smaller pieces which will be 12 runners up prizes surely to make entry participation a lot greater.
