Tried a couple of new techniques on this one- a Brandy with black bamboo and antique ivory. Used a full length carbon fiber tenon through the bamboo. Thanks to a tip from Bruce Weaver (which I think originally came from Adam Davidson, I faced off everything on pin gauges(undercutting them slightly) and then completed the glueup while the bowl was still checked on the lathe. I held the tail of the tenon in a rotating tailstock to do the final facing on the bamboo closest to the stem. That seems to really help the final fit of the stem to the shank...

Interesting button work, almost like a funnel.

I love the stain. Is that Grecian Briar?
Beautiful work, Zack.

Beautiful work, Zack. Do you mind posting the specs or is that one going to be posted on your site?

That's a great looking pipe. All the elements go together quite nicely. :puffy:

Beautiful Zack ! I love the Ivory rings,much nicer than the usual black rings seen on bamboo.

Reverse tenon? In a rotating (live) tailstock chuck or live center?

It's a live tail stock chuck- I leave the tenon long and the trim to final length so there are no chuck marks on the tenon
