Figured I'd share with my brothers, thinking if doing a matching knife pipe set with the cut off.

Alandadp Razz ya but the draw is way too tight. Don't know how wide I can open the air way up. Kidding, I think I may try to make a matching pipe stand out of it though.

Thanks for looking starting the rough file work today on the Dublin.

Ian,

That is looking good. I am a big fan of plateaux tops. What are the dimensions on the tobacco chamber? That looks like a nice big one. Im sure this will look good when it is done. Are you going to leave it smooth or rusticate it?

Sorry for the crappy photo, here it is at 220 grit and a slight bend in the stem.

That's gonna be a nice one when your done. The slight bend to the stem really adds to the whole thing and makes it work !! Small touches like that many times can "make" a design!!  Twisted Evil

Decided to try and stain and it didn't take like I wanted, so now I'm about half way through sanding it off and trying maybe just a wax finish.

But this is the final shape and you can get a pretty good idea of the grain. Very Happy

Shape looks REAL good sir and as far as the contrast stain, stain it again and then do a light sanding or use steel wool. I think it'll look great with a contrast stain. First cuts on a few new blocks. Double31

If you fine sand it long enough Buddy you'll see that is 'hair grain', looks real nice if you apply a dark stain then fine sand almost all of the stain off so you can see the fine grain then apply a Tan stain, it'll look gorgeous my friend.  sunny

Fantastic job Ian! I too like the plateau and the curved stem. That is a pipe anyone would be proud to have in their rack. cheers cheers cheers

You know how some times on a smooth pipe you can see the ring grain? It had some of that going on where the color of the grain fluctuated between the ring grain. Figured black would hide it but it accentuated it. So going to try brown stain or just accept it.

Doing a fine job. Great shape and bend!

Knife and pipe combo? A nice little plug knife with this would be over the top cool!

Here is that billiard after a little files and sanding. Leaving it with a plateau top, should be quite neat when I'm done.

Stem is completely hand cut not power tools. Got the knife picked out for this one already going to try and do a set.  Sorry for the crappy cellphone pics snapped those before I left for work this morning so I could share last nights work. Feel free to give me advice and criticism, still working on it and haven't really touched the shank / bowl junction yet.
