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.

My son needed a coffee table.
So I got the Shopsmith out and used hardwood top slats from some pallets I had broken down They were thin, so the glue up was a little tricky. I didn't have any cauls, so I went to Lowes and bought some steel garage door tracks, half in carriage bolts, and 1/16"...
