Thank you Dutch My Fourth Attempt at Carving a Pipe - Page 2 Liftha34 but, you really mustn't drink this early in the morning. Wink  

Ron, as a matter of fact, today is the first day of home time, but the liquor store doesn't open till 16:00. Very Happy

So you do have some stockpiled. My Fourth Attempt at Carving a Pipe - Page 2 Cheesy44

I understand your point and I am a bit happy with the results of this pipe, otherwise I wouldn't have posted it but, I see the flaws that many don't see and I need improvement there.
I've always been a perfectionist of sorts and am my worst critic but, that's a good thing. Besides we all have room for improvement of some sort.......don't we? Wink
And I will do more, have a half dozen blocks to go through yet. Maybe by then I'll see some improvement.

Ron, what the heck?!

I go away for a couple of days and when I get back you're suddenly a master pipe maker?

You did a very nice job on that pipe. And I really like the shank extension.
You managed to pull off something rare. It is original AND it looks good. Congrats.

By the way, that nice little Pot you made for me is a great smoker.

Hey Ron, meant to ask - did you fashion your own stem out of rod stock or go with a pre-made stem? And since you're a bent kinda guy (like me) why wasn't this one bent?

Nosey lil' SOB ain't I?

tongue


Cheers,

RR

Thanks guys! My Fourth Attempt at Carving a Pipe - Page 2 Liftha41
Mike, just because I'm an ornery cuss doesn't mean that's all I can do. My Fourth Attempt at Carving a Pipe - Page 2 Cheesy49

BD, I cheated, and used a preform but, that really doesn't make it all that much easier cause if you've ever seen one before it was sanded, button opened up, polished, and a tenon cut you'd know what I mean.
The one I'm working on now has a hand cut stem and I must tell you, I hate doing them but, it's all part of getting use to it and I reckon if it was easy, everyone would be doing it. Wink

No reason really for doing a straight pipe except that it's a little easier then doing a bent. Hey, I made the damn thing Spherical, wasn't that hard enough? I'll be mak'en some bent pipes soon just trying to get the hang of straight ones first,. Baby steps my friend, baby steps, one doesn't start on top the mountain, but at it's feet.Wink
