  1. Author pipe

    This is an Author pipe that I made for the Kansas City pipe show contest. It is made from briar with a hard maple accent. The stem is made from ebonite that started out as a solid rod. It is finished with alcohol soluble dyes and carnival wax.
  2. Refurbished Briar Burl Pipe

    20 years ago I salvaged three very old grungy Briar burl pipes thinking that they might be worth refurbishing. Yesterday I attempted to do so. Scraping out the petrified cake of carbon and tobacco proved difficult but by using a small sanding drum on the drill press I got the bowl cleaned out...
  3. Tobacco Pipe

    Definitely the most detailed pipe I have done so far. Hand carved from a single block of briar. Did 90% of the work with a dremel, then the final 10% with sandpaper and filing sticks. Not perfect, but overall I'm happy with how it came out. Time to try it out!
  4. The Salty Old Broad Pipe

    New pipe. One piece (stem permanently attached). Made from briar and ebonite. Stained with Aniline black and orange, which unexpectedly created a brown and green effect. Made from scratch, including the stem. Took me about 16 hours or so.
  5. Algerian Briar Pipe "Poker"

    This is the second pipe I have ever created even though I have been collecting for the last 9 years. It is made from a relatively cheap Algerian Briar. The stem is from Vulcanite. I tried to go for a Poker look, but with bowl that was a little more abstract. The main tools I used for this...
  6. Pocket Pipe

    This was my submission for the 2014 pipe swap. The original intent was to make a pipe which could be transported without the fear of a broken stem and the original design was to have a storage container for tobacco within the pipe. The storage container was excluded due to a concern that this...
  7. New Pipe - Paolina yellow

    Here is my new pipe, what do you think about it?
  8. Freehand Briar Pipe

    Carved from Briar with a dremel, this tobacco pipe was the third created about 4 years ago. The holes were drilled with a hand drill before I had bought a drill press and somehow they met up just right on the inside. I actually had to round a spade bit over with a grinder to make the bottom of...
  9. Blackthorn & Briar

    This is a Blackthorn Shillelagh walking stick and Briar pipe set I made for my friend's fiancé. The Shillelagh has a Briar wood top, Natural Blackthorn shank and copper plated collar. I also included a copper plated Scottish Shilling badge. I finished the stick with Danish Oil and Gun Stock...
  10. Plateau Freehand Pipe

    This is my first time working Plateau briar. It's actually much easier because you don't really have to be precise in anything when you are doing a freehand pipe. I tried to utilize the skin of the burl as much as possible; I think it came out nicely. I used a wedge stem made from ebonite. I...
  11. The Pipes, the pipes are calling...

    from glenn to glenn….......damn Im getting carried away. Anywho these are the other kinda pipe. The first two I carved a generation ago and have enjoyed time and time again. The last was made this year and has just commenced service. Perhaps carved is too strong. Sanded and shaped more accurate...
  12. Briar Pipe

    This Briar wood pipe was all hand carved and carefully sanded to its shape. I had to work with a few Knot holes in it but even with those holes i managed to carve a nice pipe and a few knots give it some character. The worst knot i had was in the wooden part of the stem, the hole went completely...
  13. Hand-carved Tobacco Pipe

    This was a fun project! I ordered a briar pipe kit and set to work designing my pipe. I did the initial shaping with my belt sander laid on its side, then did the rest of the shaping and initial sanding with my dremel. With the basic shape set, I hand-sanded it with 150, 220, 400, 600, and 1000...
  14. Another Hand-Carved Pipe

    This was a wedding present for my younger brother. I used the same method I used on my first pipe (started with the belt sander, then dremel sanding wheel, then hand sanding), but I wanted to add a little bit of rustication to this one. I used a dremel carving bit to do the job, and as with all...
  15. Cottage Sign and Post

    Decided to make this sign and post for the cottage to replace the old weathered and cracked one. Used cedar for the post, a half lap joint and bolt to join the post pieces. Used a router to do the letters, and added a border using miter joints. Finished with a few coats of helmsman exterior. Enjoy
  16. My First Pipe (Briarwood)

    This is my first pipe. I ordered a pre-drilled pipe kit from Mark Tinsky and started out with nothing but files to start my project. I learned quickly that long hours and carpel tunnel were in my future, so I opted to borrow a Dremel 200 from a friend. You'll notice the jump from the first to...
  17. Shelf for my wife

    This shelf was an anniversary present for my wife. It is made of redwood, maple and basswood. Originally I built her a much cruder version which is shown on the last photo partially deconstructed. The original was my 1st woodworking project. During a summer job building a new deck with my...
  18. Under saw tool cabinet

    My table saw blades and tools were too far away from the point of use. The combo disc/ belt sander I rarely use but refuse to get rid of needed a better home out of my way. The cabinet fits under the table saw extension when used as storage and rolls out to use as a base for the sanding...
  19. Ship Pipe

    This is a tobacco pipe I made from briar. Took a few days carving and polishing.
  20. Blue Blast

    This is a briar pipe I made. The color is a turquoise aniline dye. Complicated project because it's construction is comprise of three mortise-and-tenon joints on the stem. You can see the ebonite ring in the first picture, which has a tenon on each end, inserted into the briar both...
