    Seen this today on reddit. Thought it looked pretty cool, never seen a wooden j-hook. Here is the original artist's Imgur gallery

    "Cherry, bamboo, red heart for the mouth piece and maple burl for the accents (plugs)."

    I'm a goddamn slut, deal with it.

    @Tweak, I just recently posted in the Lotus thread about cost but here's the jist of it: Originally I asked for a $35 piece, but after the creation, the pipemaker said that they could sell it for $50. They honored my $35+shipping budget, but I wouldn't be surprised if they will start charging $50+shipping.

    And if anyone wants to see more pics of the jhook + Lotus, here's an album: http://imgur.com/a/BHhPQ#0

    I just emailed Lotus Glass and asked Jesse if he has a store. I see he has moved to Dallas and I would love to see more of his stuff first hand. We actually have a custom glass guy in the town I live in but his mother (?) runs the place.:uhoh: Pricey too!:disgust:

    Sorry for the double but can't edit above. I received an email from Jesse at Lotus. Here it is.

    sorry for the late reply. I have been absolutely swamped lately. It's just crazy here and it is not letting up, which is really odd for this time of year.

    To answer your question, no, I don't have a retail location. Just a small studio that I work out of by myself. I am afraid that I usually don't have much in the way of inventory. At times like this, I have nothing on hand except a personal piece because I am too busy just trying to keep up with orders. When things slow down, I try to build up a little stock of the more popular stuff, but I honestly have no idea when I will be able to do that again. Probably sometime mid summer I am guessing.

    Thanks!
    Jesse

    So if I want to see some Lotus Glass I will have to order it. Sounds good to me!:brow:

    The NANO is so amazing!
    So easy to use!

    I use a lot of JHOOKS (SHERLOCK'S)
    with a ASH COLLECTOR and a LOTUS, SOLO or NANO.

    FLAVOR - POWER - EASE OF USE = NANO

    Hey @ataxian, I know it's a bit late but I thought I'd let you know that Colie Glass haven't closed down. They just don't have a webstore at the moment, just the frontpage on their website and the tumblr. It looks like they've still got an instagram page as well. People have to contact Andy using his email address highproduction@ymail.com if they want one of their designs or something custom.

    I tried to post some pictures in the thread for Andy the other week but the links seemed to go dead after a day or so, I guess they weren't through the instagram. Which is a shame because some of the stuff looked pretty cool.

    @Fenton Mewley That wooden J-hook looks cool, surely a Gandalf design is the next logical step?

    I wanted to make a custom piece at some point. Just buying the cheap stuff from DHGATE until I figure it out? I don't use instagram however thanks for his email! I'll contact him once I have my drawing.

    Hey guys!

    I've designed a simple 3D printed j-hook stand. I want to confirm this shape works well with many different j-hooks before I add to my shop.

    Looking for one person with 3 or more different J-hooks to test this design - PM me a picture of your j-hook collection and your shipping address. (CONUS only, unless you are willing to pay for shipping).

    Thanks!

    And it looks like @ataxian is the winner! His collection of J-hooks will surely put this design to the test!

    I don't know if it will work for all j-hook designs, but I think it should work well with most traditional j-hooks. Here's a sneak peek at the current design. As usual, this is a fully parametric design. I can adjust every parameter to fit any j-hook

    [​IMG]

    (This one was designed to be small enough to fit into a small USPS flat rate shipping box to keep shipping costs down, while hopefully still relatively 'universal')

    Looking at it now, it might also double as a cheap universal e-cig pen stand

    I am loving that Jhook! It is a very good all around piece. Great to dab from. Great with the Persei and KISS cart. Also great with the AC. @Ratchett , would love to have a stand for that!

    PM Me, Obviously my traditional stand won't fit, but I know I can make a modified version to fit that stand (Gotta love parametric models!)

    @Looper, no prob man.
    Thanks to @MileHighLife who first put me on this J hook.
    It's perfect with the PNP.
    Keeps the overall size very portable.

    Looking at getting a j hook for my inline ash catcher. Is there much difference comfort wise between the regular tips and the spoon ones? I like the look of the regular tip but I'm not sure how comfortable it would be because the diameter is kinda small.

    @Looper Does the WPA and cap fit without the cap hitting the side of the stem?

    Yes, and when paired with things like J-hooks, the stem won't get in the way. Your main concern with the stem should be bubblers like the D020

    I was just a little concerned because the GoG seems really close to the upstem in the picture that looper posted and know my caps radius is about an inch.

    Seems like the ebay seller is out of stock though aw shucks.
