Frog carved tobacco pipe number 2
Making a frog carved tobacco pipe is always a very funny work! This is a variation of the one I made for an article that has been published on an italian magazine concerning wood (LegnoLab), with all the steps of its creation. (That article will be published soon on an english magazine, too, translated in english).
The idea of the tamper-tongue came towards the end of the work. I thought it would complete the pipe in a funny way! The frog/bowl is made of tuscanian briar, the stem is made of methacrylate hand shaped and bent, and the tongue/tamper with the fly is carved on a single piece of curly maple. Metal plate on the base of the tamper.
Th pipe comes wih a handmade case, made of abura wlanut with sliding lid in maple wood, with the engraving of a realistic frog. Magnetic closure. Fine danish oil finish.
Dimensions and specifications (APPROX):
-Lenght: 14,5 cm
-Chamber: diameter 2 cm, deep 4 cm
-Finish: frog green, wax
-The stem, made of methacrylate is detachable for easy cleaning.
This pipe can be made on commission. (some details are customizable, i.e. stem material, etc.).
