I am starting this thread for rx2man and myself to post progress pictures of the Elephant's Foot pipes we are working on concurently. This is in no way a competition, but I thought that since we are making the same shape, for the same customer, and are both new pipemakers, that this would be a very fun thread to do.
This is my 18th pipe and 2nd with bamboo. My humble beginnings are shown here. rx2man should have some up soon and we will update this regularly with progress pics as we go.

I don't care what she calls it, just as long as you love it! This thing feels very nice in the hand so far.

And you'd probably burn it out shortly there after and I'd have to make you a new one, after I came to Canada and back handed you first of course . lol
