I know it doesn't look real great, don't have much for tools yet. This was made from a found piece of cherry in my neighbors woodpile using hand saws a dremel and a drill press. The bit I carved out of whitetail antler I found in the woods using the dremel and the furrel is made from a piece of found copper pipe I shined up with some steel wool. I know my pipe making game has a long way to go, but it did smoke very well. The biggest problem I had was wood splitting. It was much taller but I cut a split out. It started cracking again so I plugged it and sealed it. Will just keep it around on display because it's my first. Really from my perspective, wood selection was my biggest flaw, not that it was cherry, but that it cracked. It's also my first woodworking project so any tips and hints would be appreciated.
