    working on my plateaux briar from FWTX SPS

    Thanks again Ken this has been lot's of fun. I have been toying with my new block till I got my new bit's in the mail.



    no more toying around these bit's took off a great amount of wood and I did a ruff sanding here is what I started with.



    and here is where I am at





    now on to a lot of hand sanding, the hump around the pipe will be a lot smaller just a little curve and then I still need to get some stuff to finish with.
    more pips soon

    That pipe is going to be awesome! I love how it is shaping up. The curves look very naturally flowing, and i bet it sits nicely in the hand!

    I'd love to know where you bought those bits? They look very nice and I need a good set like that!

    Is there a wood similar to briar that I could play with to get a feel for the carving process? I hate to ruin a perfectly good chunk of wood that someone else, who knew what they were doing, could use.

    Well, if you want something similar to Briar, you need a wood that is very dense. Apple or Olive are close to briar in that respect, but probably just as expensive. You'd probably be better off just giving Briar a shot.

    That, or just get a piece of pine (soft and inexpensive) to practice carving in general...

    That's fine and dandy until I put a drill to wood and find that it's a completely different density.

    Exactly the advice I was looking for. Apple wood I could do - lots of that around here, and I can get it for free. Thanks, Dan! I'd rather go into a nice piece of briar with an idea of how the carving/sanding/drilling feels.

    Who do you think your are kidding, Brian? You just want to see blood and scuffed up knuckles!! About the only thing I feel safe (barely) is a steak once in awhile.

    That is going to be a work of art pipe!
    I don't always drink beer,,,

    it came pre drilled







    I am going for a light finish that brings out the grain on the sides and bottom but not sure about the top more research needs to be done
