    Santa is happy!
    And the numbers... chamber is 2" deep by 3/4" wide
    across the top, 1 and 1/4", widest point 1 and 1/2".
    length, with angle.. 10 and 1/4"
    straight across..9 and 1/2"
    standard stem..5 and 1/4"
    5/32" airway tappered into stem
    mixed ox blood, light brown, and a small amount of black for first coat, sanded and went with light brown for second coat, them black for last coat. buffed with tripoli and rough wheel, the white diamond on same wheel, then white diamond with soft wheel, then carnuba polish and buff.
    And now for the hardest part... just what to put in this thing!
    What do you folks think?
    And while I'm at it, want to wish all of you folks a very Merry Christmas!
    Thanks, Basil

    Congrats on your new pipe. That is very cool you can use it as both a churchwarden and a regular pipe.
