Hi everybody,

these are my last works.

The first is a bulky dark pipe I called Black Flame:

The second, Bamboo Calla, is a light fair pipe with a thin bamboo shank:

Sophisticated designs. The shadow in the first pipe photo is a real touch.

Both nice looking pipes! The first with its beautiful grain highlighted by contrasting stain? The Calla....so delicate yet looking very utilitarian...a "French" Canadian?

Thanks everybody for the kind words.

Lately I didn't smoke my new pipes cause after a long work I'm scared to damage them! The older ones are good smokers anyway and I always start my work carefully drilling the briar to get a correct air flow and to prevent humidity while smoking.

I obtained the contrasting stain ebonizing the wood with iron oxide, then I sanded the briar till I got the desired contrast between the black and the natural briar color.

The second one is just sanded and varnished.

Nice looking pipes.
Great observation MSO, I had to go back and look at it after reading your remarks. I pride myself on seeing details like that the first time. My design instructor, from back in my college days, would thump me :)
