Hi everyone. I started this volcano right after Christmas. I stained it last weekend, but with temperatures this week in the single digits, I didn't want to stand in front the breeze of a buffing wheel. So I waited until today when the temperature got into the low 40s. I've got a good friend at work, who's birthday is next Sunday. He's been wanting a pipe but can't seem to ask for one to be made for him to purchase, because he doesn't smoke. And he doesn't like the classic shapes as much as freehand pipes. So when I started this one I decided it was going to be a gift for his 64th birthday. After all he has helped me out plenty of times. He recently gave me a motor for my newly acquired metal lathe. I hope everyone enjoys looking at it as much as I've enjoyed making it. Aspecial thank you to my wife who took the pictures with her new camera it made a big difference. Thanks fer looking.

What a corker, that is absolutely delightful, your friend is in for a real treat right there.  sunny 

A proper Volcano is a shape I've wanted to make for a while now, reckon your work here is inspiration enough to give it a blast, I'm going to do just that when I get some new Briar, lovely work, BRAVO.  cheers sunny

Great job, love the shape and the continuous line from the stem around the bowl back to the stem. It actually reminds me of an old cypress stump. Acrylic stem? Well done and 2 thumbs up.

Mister Miller, that is one beautiful pipe there. Really love the grain and you couldn't
have pick a better stem material for it.
I'd look REAL good in my hand with a bowl of Escudo LOL!

I don't see them as imperfections as much as it gives some distinctive character to the pipe...very much like sandpits.
I own a number of "flawless" pipes..pre-Cadagon Comoys...they are great looking...so are these..."imperfections" and all.

Beautiful work, and a lucky friend.

WOW! ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!! Excellent job on that pipe. Like Briar Spirit, I've been wanting to make a volcano for some time. I believe I have a perfect block of plateaux for one and am saving it for a volcano. You've inspired me as well. I may just get going on it soon. Once the temp gets above zero degrees here in Chicago. Again, nice job!

Your pipe is absolutely amazing. I have been keeping an eye out on volcanoes and yours takes the cake. Great work. As one member stated, leaving the imperfections alone makes it that much better in my humble opinion. Keep up the good work.
