    This is my third. Drilled the block myself, shaped on a sanding disc and with files, hand cut acrylic stem.

    I'd say you've made a hell of a pipe for yourself. Well done and enjoy it. Let us know how it smokes.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    Nice! What are you going to smoke in it?

    Beautiful work!

    May I ask how you found the briar?

    I have a rose bush that has an interesting knot or two in it where it got messed up going through a fence. Just pondering for now.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    There are a plethora of places to obtain briar blocks on the Internet.

    Very nice! An unusual shape and the button on the stem looks really nice too. Keep it up!

    The outside looks very nice! The draft hole appears to be centered. The stem looks well crafted.
    What I'd like to see is more of the pipe. The tenon, mortise areas are so critical to the functionality that it would be great to see what you did there, and ALSO, a nice little write up about your processes, trials, tribulations, and triumph!
    Great looking pipe!

    Very nice. The color is a bit pink-ish (my niece would love it) and the shape is quite nice. Your stem-shank transition is pretty good too. Keep it up.

    I like the shaping, a sort of egg-scoop hybrid that looks like it would hold plenty of leaf and insulate the burn. I don't think the stain is overly pink, although this is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. You've done a beautiful job on finish and the stem. Wonderful piece, something to smoke and admire for the duration.

    So you make pipes eh?

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    I'm not sure how this thread got resurrected, but a more recent thread shows an array of beautiful newly finished author shape pipes that show major developments on this carver's talent. We were there on the ground floor for one of his premier efforts.
