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.20201031_110325_compress23.jpg20201031_140323_compress10.jpg20201030_152043_compress1.jpg20201031_140328_compress1.jpg20201031_145547_compress41.jpg20210202_182452_compress69.jpg20210202_182509_compress58.jpg

Thanks for the kind comments. Along with woodworking its been a 50 year hobby. I made my first pipe from a piece of Applewood in 1970. It split. I thought about doing it for a living in 1975 along with a B&M store, but graduate school called to me, along with teaching at the University level and an AF career. Woodworking keeps me out of the bars - sometimes ?.
