    That is super. I grew up making my own toys out of wood and I haven't really grown out of that. I'm dying to try my hand at this someday.

    Just noticed you're from Worchester. My mother's family is about 20 minutes north of you.

    Re: Igor's pipe carving thread.

    Started working on an other pipe today.
    I call this one "Acorn"
    When I looked at the wood blank and the best way to carve it, it gave me the shape of an acorn.
    It feels realy good in my hand even before I started carving.
    Drilled all the holes and cut the rough shape on the bandsaw, now the hard work begins.

    I will post pictures of the finished pipe, or if you guys want progress pics. let me know I will take some along the way.

    Igor, that pipe is going to look great! The two shapes I love when it comes to pipes are the acorn and dublin styles. Looking at the pictures, is that plateau on the bottom?

    Matthew,

    Yes, there is a small section of plateau on the bottom, but I am not sure if I can leave it there and making the design work.

    Didn't have any time to work on the pipe, and won't have time this weekend.
    Maybe some progress will be made next week.

    It would really accent the pipe if you were able to keep the plateau on the bottom. It would give it a little bit of a twist on an acorn pipe . I look forward to the progress on it!

    Got some progress on the Acorn pipe today.
    Dis some carving, shaping and sanding.
    At this point the pipe is sanded to 220 grit. Tomorrow if I have time I will finish sanding the pipe, buff it and apply some wax.
