Topic: Pipe 9: NOV06 -SOLD-

With all the planning I did on pipe 8, Pipe 9 just kind of happened after visiting Heather Coleman's website on clay pipes. I love the delicate shapes of clays, and see no reason not to transfer the elegance to briar; all the better!

 

This is one of her drawings of an 1870 clay. I liked the idea of a shankless design and went to work on my own out of a piece of oil-cured plateau.

The stem will come from the stummel in compound non-ninety degree angles. It made it a bit difficult to drill the holes but the mission was accomplished after I ended up holding the wood in one hand and the drill in the other. A true master, I know.

<< Notice the wicked mess. This is a rough rough cut. Also note the broken coping saw blade. Grrr!

 

 

Here is the topside, and my own little hand held sanding strap I made out of duct tape and .. umm sandpaper. This is what I used to shape the rest of Pipe 9.>>>

 

 

 

 

This pipe will be finished tommorow, Sunday November, 26.
