Carved from Briar with a dremel, this tobacco pipe was the third created about 4 years ago. The holes were drilled with a hand drill before I had bought a drill press and somehow they met up just right on the inside. I actually had to round a spade bit over with a grinder to make the bottom of the bowl spherical. The end result was pipe that works as well as any, as far as I can tell anyway.

Awesome pipe I’d love to hear about how you drill the mortise for the stem!
