    I Made a Bulldog

    I Made a Bulldog

    Do I think I could? A resounding no. I've tried. Though I made a tool for my drill press that fixes the cone shape right, so with that maybe. I just don't think I am good enough yet. That said, it can be done. It will take a lot longer and it it will be hard to get the lines as exact.

    I Made a Bulldog

    If by this you mean the rings, I used a 1/2" Skew tool sharpened well. I used the point of the skew with the tool turned up rather than the usual side on approach. Eventually I will own a 1/16th parting tool for this

    I Made a Bulldog

    Question About Carving Pipes

    Every one of my successful carves have exacted their own pound of flesh so to speak. Now that I have a lathe I must pray to the Briar gods (Or at least to God) to be sure that price doesn't go up!

    Question About Carving Pipes

    FWIW I did my first two or three carves on predrilled blocks with files rasps, a Dremel and a palm sander. They weren't anything to write home about but they were decent smokable pipes. (My first is still my favorite and I smoke it often. My second was bought by a forum member because he liked...
