Only one this week. I present to you, The Summer Ale.

The stem is synthetic amber, and the photos just don't do it justice. I'm thinking I should experiment with photography a little to capture all the detail in the stem.


Please let me know what you think.

I really like the color stain & stem. The shank ferule looks like the head of a glass of tap ale.

Wow.. nice pipe, Kurt! The name fits it, too. There's a local microbrew here in town called Troeg's. They have a beer called Sunshine Pils and this pipe looks like it would work nicely with that brew.

Kurt,

My compliments on this piece. It is probably the finest pipe that I have ever seen you post here. You should be very proud! :)

Jeff

That is indeed a fine looking piece. IMO, this one should be the pinnacle of your work so far.

Although it probably would be even better if you owned a metal lathe. :P

Thanks guys! Not only was this drilled prior to shaping, but it was shaped entirely (shank included) on a wood lathe. :twisted:

All kidding aside, I am very proud of this pipe. I seriously could not be more pleased with it. And in 4 days or so, it's new owner will hopefully be sharing that sentiment. :)

One drawback is that it has now set the bar that much higher for all future works....

(okay, that's not such a bad thing)

Nice tri-color effect.
