This was for a friend of mine that has a quirky retro style that could be considered "dandy" I figured a traditional shape, with a bit of a twist was perfect for him.

Nice job man, I love the tortoise shell stem, it contrasts nice with the stain

Now that is fantastic Rev, a very sturdy sized bowl and the walls are an excellent gauge, not so keen on the Lucite stems myself but it does indeed seem to work very well with this pipe, very nice work Rev. Smile

Pretty subdued, masculine pipe for a fancylad, but it has class and style. I dig the stem quite a bit! Billiards aren't easy to make, and that one looks great, leaning to the "stout" side by a tad (not a bad thing, just looks beefy).

Cool

Kind of looks like it's made out of really old pitted steel. Really like that finish.

Doesn't look quite quirky to me, it looks downright classically nice. Good heavy digs with the rustication--not like more standard (and thus boring) rustication. Almost like sandblasted bird's eye. Very nice.

thanks guys, this was my first billiard and I am happy with it. The dimensions are pretty close to standard. I will make some more that is for sure, but right now I am making some freaky pipes.

I like this one Rev. It is very "old world" and masculine.

I love it. Bit of a Dandy myself though more of the outdoorsy 'Pedestrianism and Pugilism' type. I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Very nice. I like the beefiness of the bowl paired with the slender shank and stem. Good work!
