I found this piece of wood in Texas last year and thought it would make a crazy looking great pipe. I’ve got the olive chanter and a maple drone and a mesquite blowpipe so… how about a drone out of boxelder? I didn’t think it would look quite this much like something else but that’s the wood folks. That’s the real color and I haven’t put any finish on it whatsoever. I just thought this would be a neat experiment.
