Since Covid, I've spent a lot of time in my shop messing around. Here are three products of all the time I had on my hands playing around.
A bent Dublin.
A bent Billiard
And a shape that I guess in Mark Tinsky's words, I'll just call an "interesting bent." It started out as a Church Warden but I sanded through two pieces of black ebonite making the stem at the button so decided to use what it has now.
First the interesting bent.


Next: My Bent Dublin with hand turned acrylic saddle stem



Last a Bent Billiard

Thanks, I still use Imgur. I didn't know you could just upload without using an outside source.
Here we go.

Nice work, I like the depth in that first blue one’s finish! Is there a secret?!

Hey Alex, no secret. More an oops while kind of experimenting.
Navy blue base sanded down to remove any remaining tooling mark.
Another coat of base blue.
Sand.
Then two top coats of beige.
Sand, yada, yada
Polish
That was the result.
I like funky, bright colours.
