1001 - Stubby Nosewarmer
I completed my submission to the Pipemakersforum pipe trade. The theme was a nosewarmer. I used a cutoff tool to cut the end of the shank off to use and the stem insert. I applied a black stain at the early stages of sanding then moved to a medium walnut.

Completed two new pipes!

I finished this pipe on Friday. It is a very nice sandblasted ball with a bamboo shank. However, this pipe is very small. I used a smaller block of briar that had been in my briar back for the better part of a year.




This is a beautiful contrast Dublin that I finished a few weeks ago. The bowl has a slight canter forward. this pipe is for sale on my website for $90.

New website!
Well I finally have a website up for my pipes! It was definitely a learning experience. I do not have any web experience, so it took a few days to learn the basics. first edition was all sliced images in a table. I scrapped that two days after I finished it. The current setup is using CSS and div's.

I will be adding more pipes and finish putting content in the pages this week. I also have a new Dublin with a very gorgeous contrast stain that will be going up as soon as I can take some photos.

Wedding Set
Cumberland Stems and Sterling Silver Bands
The straight billiards were for the groomsmen. The bent billiard was for the best man and the freehand churchwarden was for the pastor. We did break open that can of three nuns at the wedding!

Bamboo Churchwarden

The bottom of the stummel is rusticated and the top is smooth. This pipe is an excellent smoker and its on of my favorite reading pipes.
