Is that hole in the side (third pic) a sand pit? Just curious.

Good looking pipe you've got started there Travis. Looking forward to seeing how she turns out.

Perhaps you might want to make a couple dozen of them and market them at you Farmer/Craft markets, that could generate interest and folks could handle them, and you can talk to them about your work. Sell them some bacon AND a pipe! cheers

Ya I'm on my 2nd nice one my wife was talking to me about getting equipped with everything to make stems. I'm not so sure. But I'll see it seems more involved than just Getting the stuff and do it but I need to learn if I'm ever gunna do it. I'm also looking at a few bench top buffers. I might make a bowl or something after this pipe. I tell you a latge is a God sent when makeing them. I can make one in 2 hrs roughly. Qestion dose briar really make a pipe worth any more and dose tge stem make it worth any more. I am sure I can sell them. I have to get some copper sheeting so I can add inlays and such each pipe is a learning experience . But I need advise on what people are looking for in a quality pipe so I can get better and better. I also will get picking up some polishing compound and one yall recommend. Dose any one ever get to makeing something look down and realize wow I got a mess that's what happned to me to day I was working and grabbing tools and just kinda realized damn the shop is wrecked. Any ways I'm rambling now sooo...
I hope some time one of yall take a chance on me buy one of my pipes and alow me a chance.

Yes, briar usually makes a pipe worth more. It's a denser wood which makes it less likely to burn out. And yes, stem material can also affect a pipes worth. The most common materials for stem making are ebonite/vulcanite and acrylic.
