Pipe<1> finished

Spent Friday afternoon and good parts of both Saturday and Sunday finishing the first pipe ever. The lump of briar (ebauchon) did hide a few flaws that forced me into different solutions than i had planned.

I intended to make a high tankardlike pipe but had to cut down a centimeter or so of the top of the head. Also in the front which I had intended to be a convex oval had to be turned concave on both sides due to sandpockkets and dark soft spots.

All in all it became a slightly weird freeform pipe that feels very good to the touch.
