First Pipe Making Attempt
Here is my first attempt at sculpting a pipe from a kit from Greece.
It's nowhere near perfect but this is not only my first attempt at pipe making, it's my first woodworking attempt ever! It was a learning curve and hopefully my next will be neater. I'm not going to stain or polish it. I want to experience a pure briar. So far it smokes beautifully!
Edit: Corrected capitalization in title, L.
Not bad for a first try! I would take some course sandpaper and smooth out some of the lines! And then go too a really fine grit. But other than that great job!

Thanks Irish. I'm going with the smooth paper but otherwise leaving it. It smokes so nice I don't wanna take anymore wood away and as I'll only ever smoke this in my den it don't matter how it looks. Smoke over aesthetic is my motto on this
Not bad! Shaping looks good to me.
As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

Good job, the only one in the world like it. I just bought an Unfinished for the same reasons you have for leaving yours naked, because I lack your skills.
That looks awesome, I want to try my hand at that one day.
Congratulations on your creation. I have no artistic ability or space for a workshop so I gladly buy pipes made by others. I hope enjoy it for many years.
You did better than I could probably do. I have wanted to carve my own pipe for a while now.
But I have never done any woodwork or carving and I am afraid I will just waste my money on a kit.
