Default Just starting spoons

I just made my first spoon last night, made a almost functional pipe, but thermal shock killed it, I want to set up make about 20 of them. Would the best way to prep? Im thinking 10" 26mm sections with blowtubes on both ends using 12-13 mm for blowtubes, and splitting the 26 then into 2 5" pieces. I hate mixing metric and standard measurements too much to figure out this early. Thanks for any input.

You could learn how to pull points. That save you the money on 12mil tubing.

Pulling points will help. Also, consider 35 to 38mm tubing.
