My latest work, totally new style for me. A longer pipe with mostly wood stem. It was a fun piece to make, although I don't think I will make a ton of pipes like this. The stummel is Grecian Briar, drilled on the lathe for accuracy, and freehand shaped and carved with various tools. The stem is walnut with an acrylic bit, and delrin tenon. Signed on the bottom for orientation. I still have a couple spots I am fiddling with, but it is basically done. About 9 inches overall is the longest pipe I have made to date. Very Happy

Cool

Thanks Brewdude! I many times lean toward the unconventional in my creations. This one as you mentioned is no exception.

Gonzo, most unique pipe I've seen in a long time! I'm not a big fan of unique and yet I can't find anything about this one that I don't like. Very impressive indeed.

Thank you sir:!: Very much appreciated. There are many in the pipe community who are focused on only the most traditional of pipe shapes. I too, enjoy them quite a bit, but feel the need to create things with a bit more of my own flare to it. As I see it once the basic mechanics of the pipe are in place, proper drilling, alignment, and appropriate material selection, the aesthetics are what you make of them. I have others in the workshop as we speak.
