Olive Pipe For B. Madsen...

Post by JMG » Wed Jan 11, 2017 9:40 pm

Brian Madsen and I are doing a pipe trade. He wanted an olive wood pipe so this is what I came up with. I had a big piece of olive so decided to just make a big olive pipe. Not sure if this is a cutty or more of a canted billiard. Red/black cumberland stem. 5 3/4" long, 2 1/4" tall, 7/8" chamber.

I'm still partial to the olive blast you did, but this one is very nice too! Great work JMG!

I received the pipe yesterday, and what a beautiful gift!
I haven't seen this topic until now, didn't want to spoil the excitement :)

I am now a very proud owner of a RHOX pipe and tamper. Thanks John, you rock!
