This is my first time working Plateau briar. It’s actually much easier because you don’t really have to be precise in anything when you are doing a freehand pipe. I tried to utilize the skin of the burl as much as possible; I think it came out nicely. I used a wedge stem made from ebonite. I realized wedge stems are a little trickier than your standard stem. Getting a nice taper required a a lot of sanding.
On to the next pipe. The next one is going to be made from Arizona Desert Ironwood.
