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.
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.
