Well, here's my 12th pipe and I think from a shaping aspect it's just about right although the slot in the button is just a bit cockeyed it'll pass and I'll probably be the only one that notices it. This one is made from Algerian briar and as you can see the pit family moved in on the other side of the property (peckerwoods). Nothing I could really do besides blast it (and I haven't one) or rusticate it and I just didn't want to screw it up further cause I couldn't do just a partial cause of the location the pits are in. Anyway as you can see it's partially bent chubby Rhody with Rosewood shank extension and hand cut Lucite stem. It measures 5 inches long, 2 inches high, 1 3/4 inch wide with a 7/8 inch chamber about 1-1/4 deep. And Yes, I know the last photo is blurred, wasn't on purpose but, I just didn't want to bother retaking it. I will if someone insists. Wink
If anyone can see something wrong with it please let me know.  Wink

Beautiful Ron. The lines flow perfectly. Love the rosewood accent.

The pits don't make this any less attractive. Looks like a winner to me.

cheers


Cheers,

RR

You are doing fine work, Ron.
Don't worry about the pits....they are natural and part of the pipe. Not a detraction.

Ron, you've got a great eye for pipes, this is another beauty you've turned out. Those pits add character though getting it blasted might look grand too.

Good going there mate.

I'll echo everyone else's sentiments: it is a beautiful piece, perhaps your best yet. I do have one qualm, and perhaps it is the picture quality: the button looks a little too thick. As said, I am not sure because of the blurriness. Might be nothing.
