Large Panel

Large Panel

5 7/8" long, 2 1/4" tall, 7/8" bore and 1.85" stroke. 56g. Handcut Cumberland vulcanite stem with Delrin tenon.

You would think I got enough of flat, parallel surfaces with last week's Bulldog, but noooo. A large pipe, larger than the Large Lovat two weeks ago, I'm calling it a group 6, no ifs, ands, or buts. Very symmetrical, might sound like a pun to call it square to the world but you know what I mean. I'm just glad it blasted well; as I was spending way too much time obsessing over the stem/shank fit and alignment it occurred to me that it would be a typically perverse trick of briar for me to spend all day on this detail and then blast into a cavern.
