Hi Folks, I've been away a bit but just thought I would share a few pics of this billiard off the bench today. I should have taken just a tad more off the stem and pushed the bowl shank back a bit but overall I'm happy.

Here
That chamber looks HUGE in the top down photo.
I like the strategic placement of smooth and rustication. Smooth in the front, for aerodynamics when racing across the pipe shop to get that last tin of Esoterica, but rusticated in the back, so that the user still finds an interesting view during the sprint.
Two thumbs up! :puffy:

Thanks again folks.

jeffro, here is a pic of the Dremel bits I use.



The small one is a Dremel #106 1/16" high speed cutter

The second smallest is a Dremel #107 1/8" high speed cutter
Here is a great video by Walt Cannoy showing how to make a nail rustication tool and rusticate a pipe.

Chris, you know I love your work... I can't understand the proportions on this one. It doesn't feel right to me. Sorry.

Again, thanks for all the kind comments, much appreciated. Currently I have a volcano almost complete on the bench.

Will post pics when finished.

Chris
