Have you been searching for just the right log vape? A one of a kind, work of art, made by hand especially for you? Well, look no further! Underdog makes custom vapes that are tailored to your specifications. Not only can you choose your wood type, you can choose the size, shape and finish for your vape as well!
How long does it take to get a custom piece made, what is the cost, and do I have to prepay?
Custom vapes are scheduled during certain windows of time throughout the year, usually once or twice per year. Our next window will be in early 2019. There is no deposit required to get started, and you do not have to pay until your vape is ready to ship. Custom vapes start at a base price of $255, and can go up depending on wood type and complexity of design. Each vape comes with the standard kit, including your choice of three stems, and free priority shipping in the US.
What wood types can be used?
We have a large selection of wood species, including many more that are not listed here. If you've got a favorite wood, just send us a message to see if we've got it or if we can source it for you. Alternatively, we can sometimes use a kiln-dried wood blank that you've sourced yourself. Please contact us before purchasing any wood to see if it's something that we can work with. A custom vape using your wood blank would be charged at our base price (see above). Below, you can view our gallery of commonly available wood types.
What design options do I have?
Simple designs do not add any additional cost to your custom vape, though more complex designs could, depending on how crazy you'd like to get. See the galleries below for examples of simple vs complex designs. Also, be sure to check out our All Vapes gallery for more ideas. Quick hack, if you've got a fast internet connection and want to see all vapes at once, use this link. Please note that not all wood types are compatible with all designs. We'll help guide you through it.
You can also choose your leather bottom if you like. This gallery is just a small portion of the leather we have available, and if you prefer (or don't specify), we'll pick out a nice matching one for you.
Almost to the finish line. How about racing stripes?
In addition to the custom shape you pick, we can add some burn lines to your vape to give it that extra oomph. Choose a combination of thick and thin lines, and add as little, or as many as you'd like (within reason!). Then, choose to go au naturel or add a finish. Common finishes include oiling with walnut oil or mineral oil and buffing with carnuba wax (matte) or shellac (semi-gloss). Softer woods look better with matte finishes and harder woods look pretty slick with a semi-gloss. We can also apply a synthetic finish (to some wood types) if you wish.
