The Wise Old Man

In The Wise Old Man tobacco pipe I went back to playing with squares again. I didn't keep it the straight lines like on The Gavel but it's still blocky. Also, the distress was fun to play with.

An Unexpected Arms

This is the arms I put together for the inspiring character Bilbo Baggins from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit. It was a fun change from working on pipes. The materials used are oak, steel, bronze, leather, dye, and ink. This shield can be worn on the arm and also slung over the shoulder.  Enjoy!

The Prow (ed) pipe

The Prow (ed) pipe is another break pipe. The chamber is bored to only 5/8" diameter and only 1 1/4" deep making it perfect for smoking during your lunch break or any other time you don't have much time. The stem has been turned and shaped from a piece of vulcanite rod whereas many of my other pipes have modified cast vulcanite stems. Small, handsome and a goofy ships prow all make this a pipe to be proud of.
