Stands & Pouches: Scott Tinker Curly and Quartered Movingui, Quartered Pau Ferro, Quartered Honduran Mahogany 5 Pipe Stand
Product Number: 001-069-0611
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 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.
Crafted from curly and quartered Movingui, quartered Pau Ferro, and quartered Honduran mahogany, this five-pipe stand showcases Tinker's minimalist and functional style. With this arrangement, 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.
