I have been making piipes from kits I bought from Tim West since September. In November, I took a class with Tim. This pipe is the fourth pipe I made and finished it in December. I thought I would share pics here.

I would be proud to smoke that pipe, Bob. In fact, if you send it to me I will! :pipe:

Nice pipe Bob, Great lines, and wonderful finish. Very nice piece of cross grain briar. Looks like she will provide very cool smokes indeed. . Keep up the good work.

Bob, Very nice! I've really taken a shine to Lovats/Lumberjacks/Canadians etc. Love those long, wooden shanks (and no comments from the peanut gallery here!)

That is a nice looking pipe Bob, but be careful, that pipemaking can become highly addictive very easily.

Beautiful work, Bob! Great shape and finish. For your 4th pipe it is really impressive!! I just started carving alst month, too; and it can become an obsession really quick!! Be careful! :D

That is really nice work. While I wouldn't call it a lovat, it is pretty none the less. You sure lucked out with that piece of briar.

As the McKenzie brothers would say, "That's a beauty, eh." Nice grain!

Very nice work! Great proportions and transitions. I really like the coloring, and the narrow rim on the top of the bowl. Great job!
