Being inspired by some of the craftsman and craftswomen on this site and others...I figured I'd give making a pipe a whirl...

It's not perfect, the stem/stummel joint is not perfect, it's not perfectly symmetrical (i don't have a lathe), the stem could be buffed and polished a bit more, but the draw is great, the finish isn't too shabby and it should smoke well...

My stubby billiard, made from a Tim West pipe kit...

Looks a lot better than my first pipe, Nathan.

Pipe making is all about perseverance. Simply you exerting your will over the wood, bending it to your vision. Good job on #1.

Thanks, brother.

I have a few more on the workbench from other kits (time west, pimo), hopefully I'll have a couple of them done today actually (just need finished). We'll see...

Nice work Nathan. I am just starting my first pipe, hopefully it turns out as well as yours did!

You did a fantastic job of that baby right there, a very nice looking pipe and the fact that it will smoke well is just the cherry on the cake, you should feel good about this one, very well done indeed, bravo. cheers cheers cheers

A very smokable briar with a good sized bowl and nice draw -- a fine first effort, sir!

Me, I'm not allowed to play with tools. I'm more the Ed Burak type anyway, I can design, measure, pick the materials and colors, but require an artisan to bring it all to life.

Stem/stummel joint is still garbage. The shine is nice and the draw is nice. Some nice Birdseye on the flat side. Not sure why a weird blowfish was my choice for the second pipe , but that's what the block looked like when I started sanding.

Pipe 3 is done too. I'll post the pics in the next post.

Here's pipe 3:

The best shape wise I feel, but as you can see in pic 2 there's a big nasty soft vein running through it. So I tried my hand at rustication, which I think turned out ok. Bummer...I'll still try to smoke it. EDIT: I bent the stem slightly after this pic was taken, it looks better that way.

For a first effort that's a very nice chubby. I'm moving in the direction such that my affections can respond both to those glittering artisan pipes and those which, more homely, promise an immediate, comforting smoke.
