This was my submission for the 2014 pipe swap. The original intent was to make a pipe which could be transported without the fear of a broken stem and the original design was to have a storage container for tobacco within the pipe. The storage container was excluded due to a concern that this may ruin the tobaccos flavor however I am having trouble letting go of the idea and will no doubt revisit this again.

The pipe’s bowl is Briar, with a Tigerwood shell and Yellowheart accent. Sanded up to 2000 and finished with 3 coats of poly. This was the first pipe that I have made and I certainly enjoyed the process.

Looks great !!! I’m sure it’ll be popular in Colorado and Washington State. :)

Had that thought John, really wasn’t the intent but imagine it would work well there.

Looks nice, Dan. Like the briar and Tigerwood, thought the yellow was Osage, but yellowheart is probably more stable? Way to think outside the billard box!

Terry, believe that either would have been stable workers for this but the Yellowheart is more likely to retain its brightness which I like. Really just used what was on hand for the desired accent.

Thanks Dennis these are the only pictures I personally have but some clearer pictures of the stem end are available on the Tobacco Pipe Swap 2014 forum posting.

Sorry about that, Marcus. I’ve heard that people in Colorado and Washington State are big fans of Briar, Tigerwood and Yellowheart. That’s all I meant. :)

This is what woodworking is all about IMHO, breaking new boundaries in design.Why should we make a pipe like a pipe there is no need,no rules, and no sense, in the usual design,or at least sticking religously to the stem and bowl design no need at all, once again of course IMHO . I like this let’s see who can make the best design of a usual item and remake it with a completely new idea of design.I love it already. LOL get cracking fellow jocks I have faith in you brothers ,are you all behind me? NO. I thought not LOL, anyway at least try to have fun Alistair Just 63 years young and loving it. Not even old enough to be an old fart.LOL IMHO of course.

Am glad that you approve Scotsman, Rick… I am actually thinking that a filtering storage chamber will make this design ideal and will prove that soon enough just need to order up some more Briar and have the time available for another build…
