    Hekthor, your style is really starting to "take shape" if you'll pardon the pun. The last 2 pipes on this thread are starting to show your work maturing into a really refined, modern, minimalist style. #26 especially reminds me of some of Eltang's Tubos. Keep up the good work brother. You're really developing as a carver! I might have to start saving for a chubby nosewarmer comission.....

    Hekthor, that pipe is beautifully artistic. I love the little bit of sandblast texture with that color. I have to say, when I eventually break down and buy one of these, it'll be a straight billiard in that same style. Beautiful.

    Thanks gents. The better my tools and materials get, the better the results I think.

    nice pipes Hekthor, I enjoyed looking through the thread and seeing your progression as an artist. I'm a carver myself, but have only made a few and need to get back in the shop and get another completed! thanks for the inspiration.

    how are you cutting your stems? do you use a metal lathe?

    I use a combination of metal lathe, drill press, Dremel, several files, dry and wet sandpaper, polishing compound and buffing wheel.

    My great grandfather used a pipe but I never used a pipe before and never really paid much attention to them. However I have to admit the Cherry and Black one looks stunning.

    Pipe #009-02

    This pipe was commissioned by Brent (Michigan_Moose) as a big brother to his Gandalf Churchwarden.

    Sorry for the lack of specifications but I am in a hotel room away from my home PC.

    HWiebe;

    Your pipes are really attractive and have peaked my interest. Unfortunately I can not PM yet so was wondering if you could drop me and email.
