Single Pipe Stand/Daniel Mustran Plateau Briar free hand pipe.


Here we go. This is the second Daniel Mustran pipe I made a stand for. As you can see it a LU LU. Daniel has some serious chops. The stand is Paduak and Gabon Ebony on top of a beautiful piece of Maple Burl. The base is Coco Bolo on a piece of Cherry. The pipe and stand look great together. This pipe feels so substantial in the hand as has a wonderful line. He does beautiful work. These sets with be available at Richmond.

When I see good work I feel compelled to reach out to the artist/carver/ craftsman and tell him how much I like their work. The moment I saw Daniel’s pipes I wanted to get to know him and compliment his eye and skill for design. We started to talk and I suggested I take a few pipes of his to Richmond and make some stands for them. This is the first. I have held this pipe and fellas, take it from me he’s the real deal and ready for prime time. Top shelf quality. Wait till you see the one I am designing a stand for tomorrow. OH MY!
