Made a couple of pipes that were supposed to be for customers, but a flaw and an accident means I couldn't send them out, so I finished them for myself. Then made 2 more. It'll be a good experiment to see how long these last. The small goblet has a giant fissure in the bowl, and a dark spot on the outside where the fissure is, so it's weak. I plugged the fissure with charcoal and maple syrup and baked it on. Be interesting to see the longevity. The flared tulip I screwed up by myself by pulling the lathe tool away at an angle and broke the shank off. Epoxied it on, repair is invisible, also be interesting to see the longevity of the repair.

Thanks for the comments men. It'll be interesting to see how the goblet colors, it has no stain, just polished and waxed over the briar. BTW, if they turn out to be good for decades, I'll have to will it to one of you, 'cause it'll outlive me then.
