American Estates: Old Nellie Partially Sandblasted Volcano (OC) (A) (2013) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-009-7605
A guitar maker by trade, Joe Nelson is a Wisconsin carver who has been working with wood for over forty years. Though he has only been making pipes for a few of those years, his skill and vision are no doubt evident in this superb Volcano rendition. The underside's curved surface, along with making for a sprawling surface area on which to display some sharp, contrast-stained birdseye, also serves to echo the whimsical curvature sported by the upward-thrust flanks. The aforementioned flanks showcase an almost entirely concentric display of rippling ring-grain, accentuated by a smoky crimson contrast stain. Topping it off, this dramatic piece is unsmoked.
