I wanted to make a gift for a friend that recently gave me a really nice cigar. So What do I give him? Well, a pipe, obviously!
Ok, so I’ve been a bit lazy with this one day build. I only grabbed the finished shot. But I turned the stem by hand. broke an extra long drill bit in it. Chewed up my knuckles in the disk grinder too. But this is a cool pipe. Its my first out of a non-briar wood. Its Cherry. I had a nice slab of 8-quarter and gave it a go. Fruit trees are supposedly really great for pipes. We’ll see how this goes!
