Made this one today.  Started at 10AM with a block of briar.  Finished at 5:30.  My how time flies when you're making pipes!
Anyway, The stem is made from a polyester resin blank I poured to make pens with.  Decided to use it on this pipe instead.

Thanks for the replies! Smoked 1/2 a bowl of Peterson Sunset Breeze to start breaking it in.  Smooth smoker, not a gurgle to be found.  Got that airway wide open! Nice little pipe.  Not a lot of weight, don't have to bite down hard to hold it.  Quite happy with it.

Your pipe is a classic beauty and the stem is stunning. I'm in awe of your skills.

Wow, thank you! Nothing to be in awe about. This is only my 19th pipe that I've made and only the second stem I've made. I've seen some pretty sweet looking pipes on the forum. I need a lot more practice on stem work. To be completely honest, if you took a look at the button, I did a pretty sloppy job on opening the "V" for the airway. I bought and used a zig-zag saw for the purpose, but I don't think it does quite the job I'd like. May try a 1/16 bit in the dremel next time.
