Hello BoB, it's been a while since I last posted any pipe pics. You know it's the normal real life, work, holiday stuff. I have only made a couple pipes for friends on request since then and I forgot to take pictures before I gave the pipes to them! 5)  Well, today I got bored and started a new pipe for fun while trying out a new tobacco and a good beer. Very Happy  I don't have many briars at the moment so just went with what I had while the urge to doodle was there. This is where I'm at with it so far.





So far I think it's coming along well, the grain is looking good under there. The only issue was a little sand pocket near the stem/bowl which I filled with some thick CA then sanded smooth to where it is now. I'll post finished pics in the next day or 2! Happy New Year!







The stain and finishing is probably my hardest part to do, it didn't help that it's 28 outside at the moment! Shocked

Thanks for the kind words all! I believe this is 1 that I'm going to keep as a last pipe for my 4 pipe travel case! Very Happy I had 4 commissions before Christmas and I didn't get to keep any of those. With my future travel schedule I don't know if I'm going to get a chance to make anymore for a long while, I'm looking at 250-300 days of travel this year. affraid
