I bought some briar wood from Romeo Briar and some preformed ebonite stems also from Italy.
With this and with the new vertical drill, I did my first pipe from 0. I expected a total disaster with the drilling, but that has been the easy part. It is my sixth pipe and the first real one 🙂
I wanted to practice to attach a wood ring to the shank in this one.
This pipe is now property of the great illustrator Simon Oxley, also known as Simonox, great friend of mine.
Joan is smoking right now: Martín Micalet + Dunhill Standard Mixture.
