Love the pipes. You keep up the good work. Next you will be brewing beer to enjoy with your smoke.

Hey that’s a beauty, what type of wood is it made from?

Hi! It’s made from Briar, a Mediterranean shrub or small tree (Erica arborea) whose hard, woody roots are used to make tobacco pipes. You can buy Briar blocks in some pipe shop or online.

I stained the pipe with alcool based anilin red color, and then brush again with brushing paper, so the stain only get on some part of the wood.
after using the 800 paper, i used a cotton disc with Carnaruba wax to get the shiny effects.

love your pipes; as you can see from my profile pic I enjoy a good pipe from time to time.

Beautiful. Put me on your list for when you start selling them. I really like this one.

Hi bibb! I don’t feel like selling them, i just made them for hobby…
This one is a gift for a friend, but if you make me a little box like this:
I can make you a custom made pipe, what do you think? :)

I am from Italy, so the only big deal will be the shipping to USA, but if we send as a gift we don’t have to pay custom fees! Ciao,

Have your say...
