New Guys Headed for Columbus

Just a short insertion to proudly show my latest work.  This was my first OomPaul shape, the block of Italian briar I picked was perfect, and it had no sand pits or flaws and a terrific grain pattern for a beautiful ring blast.  I have wanted to have a natural finish on my last few pipes but the grain just didn’t cooperate.  This time I think it did.  This pipe is available but I will be taking it to the Columbus show on the 29th.  of this month.

I also completed this really nice, quite large egg shape.  It has a beautiful straight grain completely around the tobacco bowl; the ring band is made of black ebony.  The finish is a very rich sable brown with many highlights showing through.  This one is on it’s way to Columbus also.

Jennifer just completed a very nice Ironwood single pipe stand with tamper.  She inlayed turquoise in the stand and tamper.  It is a good size of small to medium pipes.  The pipe that is shown with it is available on out web site, they sure look good together.
