Pipemaking 107 – it’s gettin there..

Well, I picked the damn pipe up today and went back to work on it, after a bit of a hiatus. I decided I needed to do something drastic, since it just wasn’t looking right. I decided to take about 1/2″ off of the shank, and also shape the stem (something I never planned on doing on my first go at pipemaking). Additionally, I had to drill the mortise a little deeper by hand with a power drill, which I though I was seriously going to mess up.

In the end, things have definitely moved in a position direction, and I think I’m pretty close to bringing out the finer grains for sanding. Then, I’ll just need to find some dye and pretty soon I’ll be smoking this thing!
