    Thanks Dalmas, nothing like the smell of wood turning Camphor Laurel, was good fun and kept me occupied for a day.

    So these are essentially covers for existing PVs?

    Nice work. If you decide to extend you inventory I'd love to purchase an Oz made stand.

    Could be Noe, was really just experimenting, would like to have my own components CNC machined and properly sized to fit with big end caps to finish it off and produce a locally made wood PV, but inner stainless tube. Will have to cost everything out and see if it would be worthwhile doing. Would like a big bottom button and maybe mix it up with a beauty ring or metal inlay of some sort. Just sharing atm. Would also need to put in the venting holes into the big bottom button. Will see how it progresses.

    Why use a SS tube at all?
    You could make a 100% wood tube, mech mod, with wood end caps & button.
    The only parts that need to be metal are internal & the 510 connection, instead of an inner SS tube, how about using a copper wire down to a neg spring at the base of the woody, spring housed by a wood cap.
    The button could have an outer of wood to keep the aesthetic & have metal behind it for making contact, even better would be a magnetic switch, rather than a spring switch.

    Good points Noe, hadn't thought about that at all, today was just an impulse for something to do, I thought if I posted this others might have something to add. Thanks, I am looking at this a whole other way now!
