Well, here's the poker I've been working on. I'm real happy with the fit/finish of the stem. Thanks for looking.

I like it. A good no nonsense straightforward everyday pipe. Looks like it has some deep bowl capacity too!

Love me a nice poker!

 Cool 


Cheers,

RR

Nice looking pipe there! The grain on it is awesome. Good tight joint at the shaft and stem. Nice work!

Thanks, this block had a few pits in it that I couldn't sand out without compromising the pipe. So I didn't try, they add CHARACTER Very Happy

Smart move.  You can ruin a pipe if you go chasing after pits.  Learned that the hard way.  Sanded one away and another popped up.  Now I just do the shape I want and live with it.  Though occasionally you do get lucky. If you look at the Danish Freehand I posted, the photo of the bottom of the pipe has a pit right in the middle. I tried sanding that one away but it got me nowhere. I just stopped so I wouldn't end up with too thin of a bottom on the bowl. It has a pretty deep chamber.

That's a fine looking poker. Sand pits add character!
