Hey guys, just wanted to drop in and show one of my latest creations. Hickory with acrylic stem. Natural wax finish. I almost want to make one for myself,lol. Delivery on this tomorrow. He hasn't seen it, gave me a budget, and freedom to create something for him. One of my preferred ways to work. Enjoy the pics! Gonzo

Thank you both! Hickory is nice wood to work with, and IMO smokes great too. It is gonna be this guys first pipe, he is making the move from cigs. This should be a good way to get him started.

Love the grain on it and the fact it's a lighter natural finish. Should color nicely in time. Great work Gonzo!


Cool


Cheers,

RR

Gonzo, I have to ask.......

How did you come up with the Alligator head idea for the pics? Only because there is some history here on BoB about that in the Secret Santa threads.

Question


Cheers,

RR

I am a bit of a collector of unique items, and tend to use them as back drops for pics of things I make. i got a pipe pic somewhere with a nice beaver skull in the background too. Currently I have a beaver, a fox and a parrot skull. I would imagine the others will make there way in to a pic or 2 as well at some point. I am curious now about the back story from the forum if you care to share a bit?

Thank you Dutch! I really enjoy making pipes like this one. Some classic design elements, and with some room for creativity.
