    Not sure what I was thinking, but if your going to do something, might as well enjoy it! Sitting in my shop day dreaming and got this wild hair....sooooo... Pics speak for themselves.

    The smudge on the stem on the last photo is just that, had some saw dust still on my finger. Used a .45 casing for a little contrast. Cherry wood bowl and stummel. Bowl height is 2.250, bowl depth is 1.750. length is 6.750, bowl top is 1.375 and bottom is 1.750, .750 chamber.
    That aint blood on it, lol, was experimenting on getting the right color for the "bark" look.
    Any comments, chuckles?

    Very Nice, I like the .45 case, and the shape suits me.
    Just be careful and don't soot your mouth off.;)
