Here's my first cut at a big stack. 7 inches long, 2 1/2 high bowl ID 13/16. gave it a very small waist to give it nice hand feel and make it look less like a dowel on a shank. Great briar from Mark Tinsky at American Smoking Pipes, no flaws and great grain. Bored out very smoothly.








Fired it up after I took the pics, it smokes very well. the experts were right.  Make the draft open, smooth and straight, no condensation, no gurgle. I think I'll make another.

That's a real beauty and well crafted. My type of stack and nice grain to the briar. Excellent choice of stain. The band and stem is not to shabby either. It's a pipe I would be proud to smoke. Enjoy for many years.... bounce cheers



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Thank you sir. I am indeed enjoying smoking it. Anxious to get to filling it all the way. My wife calls it a 2-pint pipe. Load a half tin a tobacco in it and b happy for a while! bounce

Break it in slowly and that TANK will last for years. Looks like a great piece of briar which makes you king king king for the day!!

Very impressive, to say nothing for it being your first one! Dig that stain, too.

Thanks, I like the stain too. I can't take any credit there, the grain was great, I just applied the stain and polish, voila, it looked good.
