The stem was with pre made tennon and the holes were made. I just shaped it.

The brass band is a repair, the shank cracked in the wise as i seem to never learn..
Edited by jvnshr: Fixed the picture links.

Thank you all.

And thanks for the help with the pictures!
Its made for a 9mm filter, got it as thin as i could.

I see it now after polishing that i need to work alittle more om the finish,.
Looking forward to packing some sg navy flake in it! Havent tryed it yet.

Been smoking it for about a week now and the draw and all works great, feels good to smoke.
But it gets realy hot real fast..

Guess i made the chamber to big, as the briar pice i used was about as wide as the pipe is now.
Any opinions on how thick the walls should be ? Is there any ''rules'' on a minimum?

I like the thickest walls. Even 3/16" seems a little too thin for me. Pipes that get too hot to hold annoy me. I am, however, impressed with the pipe you made. Thanks for all the pix.
I would think that a flake or cube cut would smoke cooler than ribbons and shag. Was it the SG/ Navy flake that heated up the bowl so much?

That's a pretty damn impressive billiard to be carved completely by hand. Well done, my friend.

Hopefully, once you build up some cake in the bowl the heat issue will abate somewhat. I think you did a great job and should be proud of that.

I have shaped a few hobby blocks with a knife. I still do one on vacation once in awhile, but much prefer the lathe and sanding disk now. Nice work.

Doesn't look have bad. If it is a billiard you might have missed the few degrees of cant the bowl needs. Can't really tell from the pictures.

With a predrilled kit those are the types of things that can't be fixed. At least not easily.
