The last pre drilled kit I had laying around. I told myself that I want going to mess around with carving pipes anymore, but I already bought this kit so I wasn't going to let it go to waste.

Haha cigrmaster, I don't plan on it. Tis just for fun, and this is the last one. I promise.
But man, I was really planning on making it big with my ugly chubby larvae pipes ... :roll:

I wouldn't say it's ugly, it's original and one of a kind. Stamp it "1 of 1". I'd smoke it!

So the shape of this monstrosity was bothering me, so last night I took my rotary tool to it.



And I thought I was going to be done ruining pipes after this one first came around. But after last night, I'll be buying more blocks to play around with. Haha

Thanks guys. I just need to have more patience with sanding it. But I don't mind the marks. Almost looks like I did it on purpose!

Ah, so you started with this: (which started with a pre-drilled block)

Much better! Any thought of removing the "chin"? Anyway, she smoke good?

One transformation, and then another. I liked the worm pipe, though I'm not sure I'd have smoked it. The second version is a lot more likable. I think you'll grab that off the rack when it comes around on the rotation. Nice bit of grain and a pleasant stained finish. Thank you for the good photos of your adventure.

I have thought of removing the chin, but I think it gives it kind of a pickaxe-esque shape.

First, truly organic.....the didimaggot......then.....well, more rustic....I'd smoke it......Definitely like the aesthetics of the de-maggotized version better. Looks like an old hand carved peasant pipe or something, other than the elaborate stem.
