wow I just noticed I wrote dark amber FERREL insteat of bit, I must have drew that up late at night/early morning lol.Also it should be noted that the tan part of the acorn would be smooth. I would kill (figureativly speaking) to have this set. perhaps you could also do the straight one as a Rhodisian. my whole look on this design was an outdoors,hunting fishing type deal. The black and tan Idea came while looking at Mark Tinsky's pipes

I'm seeing what you're saying. It would also be cool to set it up as an interchangeable stem, meaning you only have one bowl but both the churchwarden stem and the short stem.

In this case they would both have to be bent pipes, but that could be cool.

Good ideas.

A bent Rhodisian would rock!

Another Idea just came to mind two large bowls two small bowls one of each of the sizes would be for straight and the others for bent. that way you can have travel size and "lodge" size for being at home, in the cabin or whatever.

Well, I have a few ideas. So long as you allow the submitter to also make the pipe shape (I hope to start carving this summer sometime).

You say all shapes, but do you have a preference? Such as bulldog?

Sorry, Just saw this question. I honestly prefer natural shapes, meaning shapes you might find in nature or normal life. Leafy, round, bulbous, organic, exotic, artistic.

As I walk around I'm constantly looking at things and wondering if the shape would make for a good pipe. I want people to stop me on the street when I'm smoking pipes and ask me what I'm smoking, and not be referring to the tobacco Very Happy

Well, as I said I have a couple of ideas, I will be able to post them sometime Sunday (likely later in the day). A few nice organic shapes that might fit nicely with your particular carving skills.

However it turns out, I like the pipe you are so kindly offering and will look forward to seeing the idea you choose come to life.

Something with Brass Inserts, and Brass Tubing for the draw. Sorry for the rough Sketch, but I was in a hurry. You'll notice that in the center of the Brass Tubing there is a Briar insert, slotted on each side to accept the contours of the tubing. Double ring shank inserts on the stummel, Brass, Briar,Ebonite, Brass & on the stem copy the same pattern of inserts attached to the Stem, but use more Briar to allow the tenon to accept the stem.

Geez, Cyg! Sure you got that pic big enough? Razz

Ok, this idea just popped up on another thread. How about a bulldog in the shape of half of the handset to an old Bell 300 telephone? Smile

Sorry my scanner was taken by the EX, so I snapped a Pic with my cellphone, and attached it to the message. I wasn't sure if the writing was legible and the drawing notes clear enough.

Seems pretty clear to me at standard size. I was just giving you a little guff, Cygnus, but is is kinda annoying when the pic's so wide it screws up the response page. Smile

so this morning I started out the daysipping on some Grey Havens out of my new B-Line Group 6 bent and looking out my window at the apricot tree outside. Now please keep in mind that I failed art 3 times (not really but you get the idea)
I also have a pur[ple potato plant outside that gave me the idea for the other design Smile

and last for them moment (this one will take some imagination but I think it would look freaking awesome) The Blue whale with full plateah side. The bowl can either be a 45 degree bowl in the middle of the plateau or you can square off the top a bit and put it there.





more coming soon.......

The first thing that comes to my mind is a pipe ,especially the bowl,shaped like a sea shell.perhaps a scallop shell.http://www.flickr.com/photos/inspirationalimages/3949616814/ or this http://www.flickr.com/photos/inspirationalimages/3949616814/ or this http://www.flickr.com/photos/inspirationalimages/3949616814/ maybe something resembling http://www.flickr.com/photos/inspirationalimages/3949616814/ nice shape for the bowl!http://www.flickr.com/photos/inspirationalimages/3949616814/ or this http://www.flickr.com/photos/inspirationalimages/3949616814/ I think perhaps a coral type shank and of course fishtail stems!
