It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a project, so I need to get caught up! :)

This was my entry for the recent Pipe Swap, and went to jim65 in Italy! Very cool.

I also included a turned Cocobolo tamp which you can see in the photos.

There was quite a bit of work both on and off the lathe, and a more in-depth explanation of the build on my Blog.

I cannot recommend joining one of these LJ Swaps highly enough…or starting one of your own! It’s a great way to learn, and meet other woodworking buddies.

Thanks for having a look!

Comments and suggestions are always welcomed…

Nice. Makes me sad I quit smoking 25 years ago.

Beautiful! (but I think I have already said that a few times…) :)

I sure would have liked to see that one lit up!
It’s majestic! Well done!

Hard to believe that something that beautiful can cause so much internal damage to the user. Wish I had quit smoking 25 years ago, rather than only 4 years ago. Nice work though.

As the lucky recipient of this work of art, I can confirm, the pipe and tamp are even more beautiful than in the pictures! Thanks again Terry!
