PostSubject: Pipe #3   Pipe #3 EmptyMon May 14, 2012 12:19 pm

Good afternoon,

Here is my third pipe.

For this one i tried a "natural" look with only a black base to highlight the grain.

Pipe #3 32598166
Pipe #3 26805070
Pipe #3 23231360
Pipe #3 11591543
Pipe #3 66924553
Pipe #3 22215696
Pipe #3 73922651
Pipe #3 75498754

My first three pipes were made from pre-bored blocks so i was a bit limited regarding the shape / size of the stummel / stem. Also the quality of the briar, although i never encountered big flaws was a little bit limited in terms of grain.

Today i received my 4 Jaw self centering Chuck from the UK and now i can start working my blocks from "scratch".

As usual please let me know what i can do better.

Regards

Bruno

It's NICE to see such fine work on a traditional shape for a burgeoning "artison" pipe maker cheers cheers
NICE, NICE finishing and you got the proportions just right on that traditional saddle bit Billiard !! And it's a nice USABLE size as well ! For just your third pipe, I'd have to say you are going to be really good with your next pipes Razz Congratulations and keep up the GOOD work cheers

Looks good, you're getting better. Cool A little off-centeredness, but since I do all of my stuff by hand rather than with a lathe or any other perfection-making devices, it's almost a given. Nice job on the polishing and finish. As it is smoked, that pipe will start to face into a deeper red tone and look marvelous.

I love the shape, proportions, and the blonde color is Fabulous! That is a quality piece of work there, for sure. I must say for your third pipe, it is a masterful piece of work. You are sure to be a contender quickly. I tip my hat to you Sir.

Love the blonde finish on this one. Nice grain and it shows off good with your choice of stain.

You got a winner here!


Cheers,

RR
