    So I made him one. Bowl is 3/4" dia and 1 and 1/2" deep. 5 and a half inches long by 2 and a half inches tall. He wanted an open draw so drilled it 11/64". Went real deep on the rustication on this one. Any thoughts?

    The bottom half of the pipe reminds me of a vampire that has been incinerated because he went into the sun. It looks like charred ash, and that works perfectly with a pipe like this.

    Yeah! That's what I was shooting for. The rustication is so rough, it would probably stick to velcro! LoL, just kidding. :xd:

    Very nice. Inspires me to break out the modified screwdrivers again and leave the dremel alone for awhile.

    You know, not to be sacrilegious but it would be pretty badass if you inlaid a gothic cross in the stem or engraved it into the bottom of the bowl or something.

    A gothic cross on the stem would be outstanding. Nice idea Tate.

    Carefully. (Sorry, couldn't resist. It's that self control thing.)

    It would be tuff to do now that the pipe is finished but the next one you could get an object of whatever and inlay it in .. take it out .. and then rusticate

    Your texturing is fabulous ! Mine rocks too !

    Just ordered a 6mm gothic cross stamp from Etsy. Gonna give this a try on the next one. If it works, I'll retro fit the last 4. Thanks Tate, You the Man!:hbang:

    Exactly what Dingo said.

    I said it before but yours are way better looking than the Peterson line. And Tates idea about the cross was fantastic. I really want one now!

    Kinda looks like a pipe that's been grasped by the hand of an ancient and corrosive evil.:eek:
