Well a few month ago I started a pipe but miss-drilled the draft hole and mortise. I guess the briar shifted on the drill press when drilling. So the stem was crooked the the pipe as you’ll see in the pics. I got mad and shelved it for a while. Today I managed to get things somewhat straight. Side views are looking good but the stem still has a crook, OH Well.Almost saved (finished, pics added) B4c3c810

NOT that bad... looks pretty good to me. A great pipe needs character.

That really doesn't look too bad. I'm sure some of that crook can be smoothed out when you heat up the stem to bend it. Look forward to seeing it completed.

Ah, heck, ain't nothin' wrong with that. I kind of like it. If you told everyone you did it on purpose they'd believe it. Laughing Cool

I agree Huff a little judicious use of the heat gun will pull a majority of the crook out. I’ve done as much as I can with briar removal. What a Face

Nothing there that can't be corrected. The stem that is. Otherwise looking good!

Cool



Cheers,

Not bad at all and really who cares as long as it smokes well for you!!

PS, are you going to give the stem a slight bend, you won't notice any mistake!!



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Been there, done that.

The only difference is that I usually fling my miss-drilled pipes as far from my sight as I am able and start all over.

So kudos for following through with it. cheers

Conrad, I used Fiebings dark brown as a base sanded that with 600 then topped with British Tan. I really like the way the dark base makes the grain pop out.

Py golly, that turned out great Crafty! Great finish work and the stem looks fine despite the slight crook! Or can it be rotated a little?

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Looks really good buddy! I would say you did a great job saving that one. Your right the dark brown base really makes the grain pop. Can't wait to see what you come up with next.

Handsome little pipe there, Crafty. Looks like it turned out alright. I'd bet its comfortable in the teeth, too.

Hope it serves you well for many, many years.

Wish I had even a quarter of the skill that you have. My best effort was crafting a pipe out of an apple in my younger days, but that's a whole other story. Very Happy

Sweet smokes!

Yes, that's what I like about it also.

Whatever became of this pipe? Did you sell it or keep it?


Cheers,

RR

A friend of mine at work loved it, so we came to an agreement and says it smokes great!
