    Looking good Dave.

    FYI - I was able to assemble a sandblasting rig (cabinet, gun, hose, compressor, media) for less than $450 locally -all new. Try places like Harbour Freight. You really inky need a tiny bench top unit for pipes.

    Seconds? What seconds, that rusticated golf ball looks brilliant. I'm sure any piper could forgive a slightly off draw hole with that beauty.

    Heh. Thanks, Andrew.

    I like the "Golfball", too. Will be using that rustication technique more in the near future.

    But standards are important as well. Have to be sure any pipe I sell as a "first" is as close to perfect as possible.

    The "seconds" will be great smokers, I guarantee. But if I miss by 1mm left or right on the draft hole. . .well, I think that's on me, and I want buyers to know.

    Speaking of "firsts". . .finished a few pipes this week and added them to my site (www.mccarterpipes.com): A billiard, an oversized Candian, and an oversized cross-grain freehand.
    Take a look. . .opinions welcome!

    Re: McCarter Pipes

    So this lunatic (and fellow Puff member) says to me: "I need a custom pipe. It has to have a black pearlized stem."

    "My supplier is out of those", I say.

    So he chooses White Pearl as a stem color.
    And I think he's gone 'round the bend.
    But I buy the rod stock and give it a shot. . .thinking, there must be a reason people don't make stems out of White acrylic!

    . . .Boy was I wrong.

    I love the way this turned out:

    First: I'm not a lunatic... I'm a visionary!

    Second: Regarding the white pearl stem - see above. I'm a damn visionary!

    Third: I should have paid extra for one-day shipping, I wish that beautiful pipe was in my hands RIGHT NOW!

    Fourth: I love how you skipped parts of the story relating to how we (you) eventually got to that pipe design. Trust me, folks, this was not an easy job for Dave! Thanks again, I hope it's here tomorrow and I can't wait to smoke it!

    @Andrew & Dave:

    OMG, amazing work. Both the vision and execution have me drooling.

    How am I not supposed to try and one up that piece? Lucky for you Andrew all my cash is tied up in cigar speculation at the moment, or your reign as most beautiful pipe owner would be seriously short lived.

    But seriously, amazing work and enjoy smoking that beauty.

    It was truly all Dave. I gave him an idea of what I wanted - a vague outline - and he filled in the dots. And, I might add, he did a damn fine job of it.

    I'll take a few more pics tonight when I'm home... Right now I have this sucker at work, showing it off to the customers!

    Shhhh, let me revel in this!

    Wow I've never liked acrylic stems before but that looks pretty.
    Dave is truly a great craftsman at taking an idea and turning it into exactly what the buyer wants, even if the buyer doesn't know what they want. At least that's how mine turned out.

    Dave, your works keeps getting better and better. This batch of pipes is amazing. The grain on the freehand and bent bird, well Hannibal said it best.
