This was my Thanksgiving time project for a friend who wanted it for a girlfriend. She liked long stem colorful pipes. So I turned a tomato that took advantage of the Birdseye grain a d would leave a little briar bark on top. Because I turned the briar on its side for turning the bowl it didn't leave me much of a shank, so I lathe a stem in Yellowheart, a very hard tropical wood. Finally I created a military mount and hand cut a green lucien bit. My friend decided he didn't want the pipe, so I am thinking about selling it.
