Got this for a bowl to make.  Finally rough turned it this past weekend.  Thought you would like this...
The bowl is 8-1/2" round by 2" deep. Compared to the bowl in hand, the photos definitely don't do it justice.

No kidding! I can only imagine a pipe made with this. No dying necessary! Too bad it's a soft wood.

Ya know ya got me thinking now. If it's not poisonous in anyway and won't leach, maybe if one was to make a pipe out of it and use a good bowl coating like a water glass mixture to keep it from burning ya might be able to. But, that's just me thinking, no telling what heat
of burning tobacco (about 750 degrees) could do to it or leach out of it. But, I'd be willing to make one just to see how it came out but, not be the one to smoke it. Wink

I like that wood quite a bit. Absolutely fascinating to look at. As to making a pipe out of it, have you considered lining it with meerschaum? After all you've already got the lathe. Couldn't be too difficult to cobble something together. Just a thought.

Rainbow Poplar is a great wood to work with. I use it for peppermills quite often. I have turned a few bowls out of it, but that burl you have there is pretty spectacular!

Yeah, that lighter is too traditional, too classy to be the background prop for that pipe. It would seem more fitting to me if there was a Vintage Magic 8 Ball and perhaps a Lava Lamp back there.
