    How about a goblet stack?

    Here's a new one I made that I call a goblet stack. I really like this one and hope it smokes well. Can you guess what the inspiration was?

    2 3/4 deep chamber
    13/16 dia. Chamber
    1 1/12 dia.
    6 3/4 long

    Other than you want to use a lot of tobacco the inspiration looks like a pint beer glass to me.

    Steve, I like the shape, nice detail with the concave rim treatment. Interesting stem, I'm assuming it's a conventional tenon, or is it an army mount? Also, a lovely piece of briar there!

    Woodja lookit that grain! Good job mirroring the lines of the bowl in the stem. That's a nice detail that's too often ignored.

    Thanks men, appreciate it. That turned out to be a nice piece of briar. Thanks to the tree, and no truffle pigs eating at it yep, standard tenon. Anthony, glad you like that. I thought that shape screamed for a stem accent (besides, it wasn't too hard to do)

    What a great-looking pipe and it's a real nice detail, the stem lines repeating the bowl lines.
    A winner.

    As mentioned, Steve, the way the grain twists around the stem is really beautiful. Another fine pipe!

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    So what was the inspiration then? To me, the bowl resembles a candlestick holder.
    Congratulations on another job well done! Your pipes are becoming recognisable by your individual style. Different & difficult to achieve I should imagine. Good show!
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    Thanks again men, comments from discriminating pipers as yourselves are appreciated indeed. I must say. I lucked out with that tree, it gave a fine grain . Hope I have a few more blocks from that bole.

    Simon G, appreciate that observation, have to give credit where it's due, I get a lot of ideas from Pibe Dan.
    Brooklyn Bill, you're half there in guessing. I got the inspiration from the Sam Adams beer glass. Saw that glass in an ad, and said, "that'd make a great pipe."
