My pipe carving kit

Alright so, my pipe carving kit came in on Friday.
Here's your warning. This thread will have a bunch of pics.
So it came Friday and the hole drilled for the stem was drilled crooked. (Pic 1)
I contacted them and they're sending a new block. I'll hopefully have it soon.
In the meantime I figured, why not practice on the one I have and learn a few lessons.
So today I took some time to get started. Of ciurse the kids wanted to watch but, luckily they didn't cause much distraction.
So, pictures speaking a thousand words...here's a few thousand words worth of pictures.

Thanks brother. I've never been overly handy but, so far it's going well for a first time, amateur.
And only 2 small spots of rasp rash haha.

Here's where I ended up.
I'll probably do some more after dinner. Probably when the littles are in bed.

@Matt_21, from what I've seen of pipe making on YouTube, the pros have a whole bunch of specialized equipment to speed up the process and make it less back-breaking. You've made incredible progress with just hand tools. Thanks for the update.

Thanks guys.
Here's where I've stopped tonight.
I'll start up again in afew days when I'm off.

Wiped it down a bit to make her look purdy for the first few pics.
Smoking some Captain Black Royal in it now.
Lee encouraged me to have a 'victory smoke'. Should have dry boxed some had I known. It's smoking a bit damp I think.

Fantastic. Glad to see it's already getting smoked!
