    Recently made this shop pipe, but every time I tried smoking it a lyric from an old song kept going thru my head..."Fat bottom girls, you make the rockin world go round!"

    So I reworked it a little...

    So now it's a sitter, with some nice grain on what was a big butt! Still smoke excellent, got some of that Squadron Leader in it right now.
    Any opinions, comments, pokes with a sharp stick?

    I was thinking the original version might work like one of those inflatable snowmen that you punch and it'll roll back but then right itself. Little lead in the fat butt might do it.

    But the new version is imminently more practical and looks sharp too.

    Fat bottomed girls need lovin' too! I'm odd man out here....again. I kinda prefer the first iteration, but then I lean toward "different" and "quirky" with my shape preferences...

    Nice! I like the latter version much more. Hows the tenon/mortise and airway? :)

    It now looks more " balanced" ( no pun intended) between rustic and smooth briar which was already on the rim and the end of the shank.
    Well done a that is a sweet mod and nobody would ever know it wasn't original.
