One more night’s work and it’s coming into shape. The bowl section of the pipe, that is everything to the right of the black line in the shank, is cross-grain. I’ve I positioned the briar to the left of the line to display straight grain. Should be interesting once the stain is applied. You can see how the model pipe, the one on top, has been used as kind of a guide for the shape of the bowl of the newer pipe.
