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.
