First of all, this pipe is "Not For Sale"!
I was working on trying to make a Devil Anse pipe but didn't look at a picture before I started and didn't even get close. It turned into a Billiard Nosewarmer. But still is a decent looking pipe. The briar however had a couple pretty bad flaws. One being inside the bowl and so it's now a shop pipe.
I filled the flaw in with grout mixture and smoothed it over. I've fixed bowls like this before, but it doesn't mean it will work this time. The pipe may last 10 minutes or 10 years.
The drilling is dead on and it should smoke well, for as long as it lasts. While I did open the airway like I always do but since it's a shop pipe, I didn't worry too much about getting the stem completely smooth on the outside and there are still a couple dings in it.
As said though it turned out to be decent looking so thought I'd post a picture of it here and see what you all thought.
