    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..

    Looks like a professionally made pipe.

    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.

    RESPECT THE PIPE!

    That's some impressive whittling! How long did the rough shaping of the bowl take?

    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.

    I tried to get the bowl a bit forward tilting.

    Only the stem was pre drilled.

    The brass band is a repair, the shank cracked in the wise as i seem to never learn..

    If you go to a website for companies that sell golf clubmaking supplies, they have inexpensive polyurethane pads that you can put on the jaws of your vise that can help prevent cracking.

    I had fun with this since I interpreted the block and knife as a plug of tobacco and a knife. Imagine my surprise when I clicked to the next few photos. I'm sorry about the mishap with the vise, but I am totally impressed with the results you attained with carving by hand. The skill level of some on Forums is amazing.

    Once your photos are on this site's album, select the full sized image, then Control-click (Mac) or Right-click (Windows) on the image itself, then choose "copy image location" or similar words. Now paste that URL (the full web address, which should end in .jpg or .png) into the IMG box in the reply window of the thread you're posting to.

    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.

    That's impressive. Take pride in your pipe, smoking from one you made! Very cool.
