I had trouble yet again with a gap between the shank and stem.

I just had a thought tonight to use my tablet to quickly and digitally remove briar. Wish i had thought of this a year and a half ago.

Think i might try this at different phases to help me visualize better. Image

Leave it be. Look it over with a fine tooth comb, compare to other pipes that you want to emulate and ask yourself what you need to change on the next pipe to make it so...then do it.

The big hole and the little hole meet at the bottom of the bowl so that's a win. Keep going.
... I shouldn't tell you this, but you missed the part where the little hole originally went right through the other side of the bowl :lol:

I Dr. Grabowed that bad boy up, and will have to coat the bowl now. Have a good coating recipe?
Just put your finger over it like a little Dutch girl when you smoke....
