That's a nice looking pipe Brian.
Do you use a tapered drill for the airway in your stems?
Did you buy or make a long tapered drill for this stem?

Thanks Fred. I always use a tapered drill for my stems. For this stem, I used a drill bit from Vermont Freehand (medium length)

And thanks to all of you for the kind replies
I'm still up for comission work if anyone should be interested.

That's really well done. Good for you drilling out a long stem like that!

The execution of the shape is really nice. I like how the top of the shank is swept up a little bit, but you still maintain a well-defined junction between the shank and the bowl. The accent rings are a nice touch, too.
