No Plumbers Crack Here

This pen started out as a sort of a Steam Punk theme but I am not to sure how true that is on the finished pen.
It all started at Home Depo looking at the brass plumbing parts and went from there.
This pen has a brass cap, union, 2 inch threaded 1/8 pipe and some copper wire.
I had a small piece of ebonite, a Waterman clip and a clicker unit from Richard Greenwald.

First I had to wrap the copper wire around the brass pipe between the cap and the union.


Then I had to turn smooth.

And then polish.

Next I had to find a clip that would work and make up a section which I used ebonite.

This is absolutely gorgeous! Do you have an inventory of your work that you sell to the public, or is all of your work done by custom order?

Most is custom order but if you see something you like you can always check with me.

So I'm about to Plumbing in a new shower in my mobile home. I'm ripping out the old one and not sure about how to plumb in the waterlines to the actual valve. It looks like grey pex pipe so I'm wondering if I need to use copper from the valve to the shower head or if I can use pex. Also do I need to redo the drain or if the new drain will line up with the old drain?
