My first attempt at making a pipe. Cherry wood poker, just needs rustifacation around rim and stem and finish. Happy with how it’s coming out :clap:

It’s 6in now. It has a cut down mm cob plastic stem on it right now, plan to replace that with a smaller stem. Will shoot for about 5 inches or so. Made it with stuff I had laying around.

Finished pipe. Made with stuff I had laying around. Cut bowl and stem with a cordless drill. Next up a cherry tulip with ebonite stem. Will see if I can fit a tenon with only files and brill bits.
