    Cheers Steve, exactly my thinking, saw all the lumps and bumps and the surface and thought it added something a little different.

    Don't worry. I wasn't flashing :)

    It'd look nice smoked in, the exterior of the wood gets a bit of a tar stain .. like meerschaum

    Nicely done. You should send it to "Man of Tannith" for a test and review. Sam likes a pipe.

    I love the fact that you've gone and made a pipe (lovely btw), but don't smoke! :D

    Not sure I am going to be able to describe this .. but if you dig out the bottom of the pipe then thread a hoop of light string or cotton thread through the bowl, you get a great thing to entertain yourself with. Meant to be a kids toy, but, you know. :)

    Edit: a string pipe ... has a name! Sort of does this but without the gizmo

    I myself am not at all sure what feeling I should have when I readabout a non smoker making a pipe.

    (but I dont do emotions well anyhow)

    Its a great pipe, simple but effective. Im sure someone will cherish it
