I turn 29 today and as a gift my dad hand carved a pipe for me, and made a box to put it in. Thought I'd share here, I was pretty stunned at how pretty it came out. He's not a pipesman, but know I love them so did some research and this was the result.

That was VERY generous of your Dad and certainly shows the great love he has for you.
And for his very first pipe carving attempt it is certainly well done! Enjoy as I know
you will, if for no other reason that he made it with his hands just for you. Wink

Oh! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIR!

Your Dad never made a pipe before you say? Well he certainly must be familiar with woodworking and understand pipe shapes, because that's one humdinger of a first attempt! What a wonderful gift, and that box is no slouch either. Kudos to your Dad!

And Happy Birthday brother!

cheers


Cheers,

RR

Thanks everyone.

Smoked it a couple times with some Stonehaven that a friend sent me and I'm happy to say that it smokes wonderfully and fits comfortably in my hand. I think I have a new favorite pipe. My dad is now itching to make more.

Your dad has some skills! That is not an easy shape to make. I'd love a pipe my father might have made, definitely treasure that one.

We are going to order some pre-drilled briars and he's going to teach me so we will each make another. I think he will make one like this for himself, and I may try to do a bulldog style. Should be an interesting challenge!

....and it's got a ferrule! When I make my first pipe, I promise it will only be stem and stummel. And it will be ugly. Congrats on this one brother.
