Heers wut ya git!

Pull up a seat and read a little. If you are from WV you are probably like me and have never learned to read so get someone to read it to you. I'm Skully, my friend Mike listens to me and translates my words from Hickglish to English. He is familiar with the ways of folks from other areas, and can communicate readily with the general populace.
(Fetch ya a char an lisen ta wuts heer. If’n yer frum West Verginua yu r proly lak me an ain’t had no reedin ejukashun so git sumbudy to reed it to ya. I’m Skully, ma frend Mak lisens ta mee an translates ma werds frum normul to wut them thar hi falootin peepole talks. He nows how to talk to outciders an can speek thar langwige.)

Pipe making continued

Still lots of sanding to do.
I have never carved anything before but now know that it is not easy.
The Bowl is Plum and the stem Walnut. This will make a nice "wall hanger" as I am sure it will never be smoked but should look good in a nice stand on the mantle. The photo doesn't show the very nice grain in the wood. After sanding this will be beautiful and will probably get some manner of oil as a finnish.

I'll try to get some good close-ups of the wood when it gets finnished an a couple of weeks.

I think I'll stick to shelves, cabinets, boxes and the like for now but I enjoyed every minute of this project.
