Well, I figured I would show a pipe from start to finish. Here’s my work area. I also made the work table.

Here’s my next pipe block.

And here’s the rough phase I got it to this afternoon with stem fit.

Tomorrow is the messy day when I break out dremel and start getting the shape refined. More to come as it develops.

The lathe is in the back under the brown cover. I use it to turn my sanding disc and buff wheel. I actually enjoy the challenge of the hand work. affraid ever tried making a cylindrical pipe with a dremel? It can be challenging, see the nose warmer I did. Even cylinder done by hand! Very Happy

Hey Oz, a quick question. What’s up with the small Aussie stamp you use? Just wondering as I was born near Melbourne Aus.

That's coming along nicely! I like the bowl shape too!

The Aussie tag pic is from a bombing run to Australia. That was a good one!

I appreciate the work people do with their hands when it comes to any kind of woodworking. My father was a craftsman and did amazing work with wood. He could "make the wood talk". There was a passion there, and I see it here also. For whatever reason, I was passed up when the woodworking gene was passed out!

Superb work!! I enjoy working with my hands and need to dabble more with a few pieces of old briar which I’ve been saving. Now’s as good a time as any I guess. Still getting use to being retired. Need to hang around my workshop more than the local range. Old habits are sometimes hard to break. I’m retired, not dead and some of these new recruits can’t hit the broadside of a barn with a .357 or a 1911. So for now in my spare time I still do some training.
