that pipe has a lot of character actually. Crazy idea, but does silly putty harden? You could fill in that v-shaped area between the bown and stem and then apply your paint/stain over that...

Oh, that's just a mock up. That gap will go away and the stem will get some sort of shaping.

Are you using a lathe or just whittling by hand?

My suggestion would be to create a tendon into the bowl (look at your cobb pipe for an example) and hand shape the shoulder to conform to the curve of the bowl.

Finally, maybe even look into drilling the other end of the shank for a mortise and tennon and use stock bits from Missouri Meescham.

btw, looking good.

I'm rigging up a lathe of sorts. I will be cutting the bowl side of the stem down and recessing it into the bowl. I have thought about MM bits. I'll be using something off the shelf. I don't really feel like learning vulcanite for this build. I'm also trying to make it with tools and materials I already have on hand(excepting the bit).

I opened a new can of tobacco tonight. If you like aromatics I recommend this stuff. Very sweet smoke!

Hey Mike

Is that sweet like sugary flavorings or just a nice smooth naturally sweet tobacco flavor? Cool looking pipe BTW!

Hi Dan!

Thanks! It's actually just a cheap drug store pipe, but it smokes better than my expensive one. Go figure.

This tobacco is indeed naturally sweet. It's not sugary or overwhelmingly sweet. It has a great chocolate back bone with a very mellow finish. It's not harsh or robust. It rolls down the tongue very nicely...
