It just so happens it and another one are going up on eBay tonight. Wink
If they don't bring what I think is fair market price, that'll be the end of pipe making for me.
Just to expensive a hobby, besides I'm a much better buyer then maker anyway. Wink

Okay, I had a little time and with the help of me being so disgusted with my original job on this pipe I decided to TRY to improve it. I reshaped the stummel so the bowl had more definition/cheeks and cut another stem with not so much tapper at the button but, a much better curve, also added a silver colored ring to strengthen the mortise and add a little flair and break up all that white. Although I've had two bowls out of it back when I refused to sell it the first time, that hasn't changed because of it being smoked now but, at least I can look at it with a little pride now.
Here it is now, look like the same pipe? Wink

I definitely like your "improvements" Ron. They really complete the pipe and once again some sterling pipe work on your part !! Twisted Evil

Cool

Liked it before. Love it now. I can't imagine a better shape coming out of that block. The grain is perfect for it. Did you find the grain and chase the shape or the other way around?

That is a great looking pipe. Can't see how you could do any further improvements.

Thanks guys 11th Pipe - Bull Moose / Apple? NO! an AUTHOR Redone  - Page 2 Liftha53
And Piff, A little bit of both, I have a habit of drawing the stummel on the block 1st while trying to orient the grain to the pipe. I know a lot of guys draw out a pipe and then transfer it to the block but, I haven't the luxury of having a stock pile of blocks to choose from only keeping maybe 8 on hand so I have to make my pipes fit on the blocks I have.

I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that the 2nd coming of this pipe is an improvement; I thought I had a good eye, Ron, but yours is better. I thought the original was an adorable pipe (and it was,actually), but this is better. Guess I should stick to billiards--I know damn well what I like there, and why.

Embarrassed? You've got nothing to be embarrassed about sir I'm the one that should be embarrassed for letting anyone see the pipe the first time. Before I go showing off my wares I should know what they suppose to look like. As it is I'm sure later on down the road when I've hopefully improved my skills I'll be ashamed I showed many of the ones I have already. Wink

The only trouble is it's too near Christmas and my better half might not be too pleased my friend.

That is truly a beautiful pipe. I really need to stop my other wood turning projects and get back to making another pipe or two. Unfortunately, its been like 3 years since I've made a pipe (time flies) and I'll most likely F it up. You do GREAT work. Everything you've posted I've been amazed with.
