Pipemaking 103b

This is just a minor update, so I won’t bore you with photo after photo, but here’s a quick shot I captured this morning from my iPhone to show some progress. I mainly focused on the shank last night, and its getting pretty difficult at this stage in the game. Next up I need to start trying to make some concave curves into the shank, which are going to be a bit complex with the equipment, or lack thereof, that I possess. I’m getting really close to involving power tools; we’ll see how long I can last.

I did pick up some additional sandpaper last night for later phases of work. They had a mix pack of papers ranging from 220 all the way to 1600 at harbor freight. I had zero luck finding some dye to use as a stain for the pipe at local stores, so it looks like I’ll have to go the online route for that. Sadly I think I’m going to have to take a bit of a break from working on the pipe coming up, since I have a few days of wedding activities to attend to, plus business travel.
