Pipe Accessories: Scott Tinker Walnut Oval 5 Pipe Stand

Product Number: 001-069-0331

Professional opera tenor soloist turned woodworker Scott Tinker takes a very hands-on approach to his craft, as in, wherever feasible he favors actual hand-tools over powered tools, creates his own varnishes from natural, raw resins and oils, and champions extra-fine hand planing over sanding when it comes to producing a superior finish. The planing technique is particularly noteworthy, as it really does a wonderful job of bringing out a wood's potential for reflective properties, and a beautiful shimmer — as Scott points out, even fine-grit sanding will leave a wood's surface "fuzzy" at a microscopic level, diffusing the light that strikes it.

If rippling displays of chatoyancy are your thing, this Tinker five-pipe piece has that in spades. Between the distinctive grain-pattern produced by Scott's choice of crotched walnut, wood specifically cut from the intersection of a branch and trunk, and his hand-planed finishing, the results are gorgeous.

In this 5-pipe stand, each pipe can be securely held in place through a series of magnets. Just place one of the magnetic balls into the bowl of your pipe and align it with the corresponding magnet inlay situated within the stand. The result is a minimalist presentation of your favorite briars and meers.
