Well, I figured I would show a pipe from start to finish. Hereís my work area. I also made the work table.


Hereís my next pipe block.



And hereís the rough phase I got it to this afternoon with stem fit.



Tomorrow is the messy day when I break out dremel and start getting the shape refined. More to come as it develops.

The lathe is in the back under the brown cover. I use it to turn my sanding disc and buff wheel. I actually enjoy the challenge of the hand work. affraid ever tried making a cylindrical pipe with a dremel? It can be challenging, see the nose warmer I did. Even cylinder done by hand! Very Happy

That's coming along nicely! I like the bowl shape too!

The Aussie tag pic is from a bombing run to Australia. That was a good one!

I appreciate the work people do with their hands when it comes to any kind of woodworking. My father was a craftsman and did amazing work with wood. He could "make the wood talk". There was a passion there, and I see it here also. For whatever reason, I was passed up when the woodworking gene was passed out!

And done, went with a medium brown under stain, sanded that off then a light oak top stain.






I hope you liked the process!

Superb work!! I enjoy working with my hands and need to dabble more with a few pieces of old briar which Iíve been saving. Nowís as good a time as any I guess. Still getting use to being retired. Need to hang around my workshop more than the local range. Old habits are sometimes hard to break. Iím retired, not dead and some of these new recruits canít hit the broadside of a barn with a .357 or a 1911. So for now in my spare time I still do some training.
