Hi Guys,

I am calling this one a "Sitter Dublin / Ballerina", and I am really excited about the design.

It shares a couple design elements with one or two of my previous pipes, but this pipe is something completely new for me.

And it was quite a project, too, let me tell you.

I have more than 30 hours tied up in this pipe, not counting the time I spent designing it.

This one is $340.00 USD shipped to your door, and there's a PayPal "Buy Now" button on my website if anybody's interested.

Cheers and thanks for looking.

Robert

Thanks so much for the kind words, Huffelpuff. Yeah, I think the thing that I like most about making pipes is that it gives me a chance to tap into my artistic side.

Wow, how did I miss this beauty. One of the nicest shaped Dublin sitters I've seen. Extremely well crafted and you truly used your head coming up with the design. 



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Thanks so much, Lonecoyote. Yeah, this one definitely took some thought, especially imagining how to balance it in theory without actually having it in my hands to play with.
