Well I'm working on some pipes and thought I'd try my hand at freehand drilling and well, it went a lot easier than I thought and I didn't even lose any fingers Smile
I also am posting some others I'm working on at the moment for the Columbus show. I hope to have a minimum of 10 pipes available. Let me know what you think so far of the gnarly freehand dublin bamboo churchwarden with plateau concept pipe. I think it's awesome, but I may make it with an optional smaller stem.

Thanks guys! And David I'm not really sure if I liked it or not. It was ok and definitely offers some benefits, but normally I'll use my holes as guides for keeping thing centric. I definitely plan too do more of it.

Shaping first is definitely weird at first. It looks like you managed to turn a pretty nice rough shape out before drilling, though, and your drilling is really accurate. Nice work, man! I look forward to seeing the finished pieces.

I think that volcano is going to turn into something I might want to buy if it doesn't sell at the show especially if it was fitted to use a 9mm filter. If you set it up with a 9mm filter and you don't sell it shoot me a PM and maybe we can come to terms. I've been looking for a volcano for some time on eBay but seems like the ones I like are running out of the price range I've set for myself.

I too like the little Volcano and the two others next to it but, the freehand with Bamboo just looks like it's missing something between the shank and it to me.
But, that's just me.Cool

AJ, I actually have kind of a theme going with this one and planned on incorporating bamboo, a little bit of black and blue lucite, white synth ivory, and a its design has volcano and oceanic properties and it wil be named the "Big Kahuna" Razz I know, a bit cheesy, but that's what I envisioned. I'm sure I can make you exactly what you want at a very fair price though. If you want, let me know via pm what you have in mind as far as shape, stem material, color, obviously 9mm filter ect. and I will work with you on everything else.

It just a concept as of now, I haven't even fixed the baboo to the stummel. There with be an ivory, exotic wood, or lucite junction that will accommodate churchwarden stem, or a shorter bent stem.

That'll probably do it. I'm not carver nor am I any kind of expert and as for most the time my views on anything are just the opposite of everyone else's. So please don't take my opinion as meaning anything.
