A JAG Olive Rhodesian

Post by joegoat » Thu Jan 26, 2017 5:45 pm

This has been a little at a time pipe. After several days of an hour here or there, I sat down and finished it today. It has a nice big bowl and would be great for hearty english blends.

Ah I thought it was just a combo of the angle and lighting making the stem look funny.

I don't think the stem is the issue. The lines would look a lot cleaner if the shank flowed from the bottom of the bowl. As it is, it's a bit of a poke-rhodie. Still pretty though. I'm of the thought that someone could carve a dog turd out of olive wood and it would still be pretty.

This one was a fighter from the beginning. It all started with the block coming out of the chuck and busting me right below the mouth. The uneven lines where the wood was torn away by the jaws made it sit just a hair crooked so the draught is a smidge off center and the shank had to go smaller to round it out. I had to call it good enough on the bottom line. I wanted to leave a little meat at the bottom of the bowl and I'm pretty sure if I went as far as I needed to in order to meet my new shank dimension it would been paper thin. It should still smoke good. Maybe it will sell as an unmarked second.
I have also been very impressed with olive's grain. My only complaint is that most of the blocks have a dead spot where the grain is void of the heavy dark lines.
