Hi all, I was so pleased with this until I stamped it. I gotta get myself something else to set my stamp in. Thinking of a used pool ball perhaps. Thinking I would be clever, I tried to place my stamp over a small gouge I made while I was using my 1"x30" belt sander. Turns out I wasn't. I decided to leave it since it was deeper than I wished to take it down too. I figured it would make the shank way too narrow. C'est la vie.
Anyway, here are a few pics of this Bent Dublin with hand turned Cumberland stem. I tried my best to polish the inside of the funnel up to 800 grit and the button is a tad off.
Cheers all.

That's a big dramatic swoop design, and I really like the stem. Stamps seem forever a problem. I have a number of pipes with failed stamps, and a few with good stamps that would evaporate on a buffer (I don't own). Enjoy the pipe and take the stamp as the fortunes of war.

Nice looking pipe. Well done.
It's double stamped...like a coin that was double stamped at the mint.

Thanks folks for the kind comments. I should post this one on the makers forum.
JP: yeah, I think you're correct.

I'd say it's got your name written on it! Nice looking grain, finish, and stem! I know it will be a corker of a smoker.
I feel badly for ya...though.

Very nice looking pipe. I'm sure the stamp feels like a big scar on your finished pipe right now, but it's only a small issue. Smoke it and enjoy it puffy

Thank you again for your support. I'm going to post it on eBay or Etsy and see if I can sell it.

Great looking pipe. No one would ever notice the button but you! Stem looks great! Love the rod you got, lovely grain!
