One more to wrap up the year!

This one needs a home but I don't know if I'm selling her yet. Let me know what you guys think.

Love the color of the stain, and the grain.
Cumberland goes well, as well!

Love the way it cants a bit, and that the shank has a very slight taper. My one esthetic objection to the usual classic billiard shape (and I'm a billiardite)is the way the sides of the shank are parallel, just a wooden tube in other words, then the taper for the stem begins. Looks too abrupt or something. The cumberland is a perfect choice for this pipe. One of the very best billiards I've ever seen.

High praise guys. I am humbled. Thanks.

I just got a lathe, but am completely unfamiliar with how to really utilize it to its full potential. I think this is apparent by the good but not so spot on proportions.

I'm frankly torn about whether or not to sell it. Lord knows I don't need another pipe, but there are some small pits right near the stem/shank junction that make me worry about the pipe's longevity. If I do sell it (because I need the loot!) it will be steeply discounted with my concerns made known to the buyer. I guess I could put a band on the pipe.

She is light at just around an ounce and about 5" long.

What is your average asking price for your pipes? Not necessarily this one , just in general ?

Typically rusticated start at $150-$250. Smooth $175-$275. It all depends on the complexity of the design, size of the pipe, ect.

I have a love-hate thing with billiard pipes. I love them a lot...when they look like this one. A poorly-made one is sure a sad sight, though. Really well done! Very Happy

Cool

NICE,NICE job on that one ! It has a sort of Danish/Stanwell look about it what with that forward canted bowl and inward sloping top. The grain, and your choice of stain/finish along with the tapered shank and cumberland bit ALL just work so well Razz

lol! True words, man. A right-angle piece of crap designed by a cretin. But the good ones "flow" or some damn thing.
