The pipe that didn't want to be Empty
PostSubject: The pipe that didn't want to be   The pipe that didn't want to be EmptySat Oct 08, 2011 12:30 pm

I ended up taking a few days off from work and thought I would share the last couple of days... Talk about a piece of work...Everything that could have gone wrong with this pipe did. Originally the shank was about 1.5 inches longer with a light (white) horn ferrule. The horn had the tennon on it and the shank the mortise.. while trying to get the proper curve in.. I ended up sanding into the tennon... so I had to cut off the end where the tenon was showing through.. next thought was bamboo... unfortunately I have no bamboo that would have fit the shank diameter.. so fiddle a little with drill bits and the stummel and I had room to fit another piece of horn.. then when fitting the first brass ring all was well until I was shaping the horn .. got too close to the brass.. so more sanding.. and picking a smaller diameter of brass.. fit.. .. but too much went wrong.. I got a piece of briar that wanted to stay briar... so it will become mine.. plan on breaking it in tonight..

...I'd say it came out rather nice, all things considered! I hope the smoking isn't as much trouble! Cool

...you know, if such a bag exists, I'm sure there'd be a taker or two for said contents...

...just as a point of note... Very Happy

oh.. the bag exists... it's hanging on a handle of one of my workbenches.. BUT.. they are all either failures at freehand drilling or have fissures that breach the tobacco chamber... thier wood.. and have connected holes... and will probably become firewood

Looks really good, it's got a nice shape and the stain looks great. That Dublin you did is still my favorite though.

thanks.. it smokes great... the wall near the bottom on the bow (on the thinner side)l could be a bit thicker.. but as long as I'm carefull once the cake builds up it'll be fine..... and if there wouldn't have been a sand pit there.. the right side would have looked more like the left... just a little thinner

smoking wise there isn't a single problem w/the pipe at all..

tks for all your comments.. and that dublin is still available Very Happy

enjoy

I wish I could, but it's just not in my budget right now. Let me see how this month goes and maybe we can make a deal if it's still available
