I had an interesting piece of briar with nice grain and tried to make a pipe to fit the grain. Yes, No, Maybe?

It's very eye-catching ... I love the color and the way it shows off the grain ... what is the diameter of the bore ?

3/4" bore on a mini block I got from Steve at VTfreehand. Thanks for the comments all! I used a light mahogany alcohol based stained as a base, sanded then a light oak over that then buff polish wax.

Very nice indeed, one thing though, I'd get that bark off the Plateaux before too long, the Plateaux will really 'pop' once it is off, excellent work and a wonderful idea for an unusual shape, I love it, bravo.  cheers cheers

Oh, yes! Most definitely, YES!

That is an absolute cracker of a pipe - really very, very nice.
