Here is the design that I am thinking would be all around pleasing and it has a nice flat facet to allow for stamping and it also acts as a dottle tool...
Image
The tamper would have an overall length of approx. 3.5 inches by 5/8" at it's widest point with a tamping tip made of solid brass with an approx. 3/8" diameter to facilitate use in any sized pipe, the wood used for the pictured tamper is Bolivian Rosewood which is a good choice IMO as it is a very dense wood with nice grain and turns and finishes very well, also keep in made these are hand made with no jig so they will not be 100% identical, although I will do my best to keep them as uniform as possible, the stamping would read "T & P 2012" or "2013" which ever is decided. Cost would be $25 each shipped in the CONUS, overseas shipping costs would have to be additional. I am open to input from all members interested, these are just my ideas and nothing is set in stone (except cost). I will leave design options open until the end of September, will take orders for the month of October and then order the needed materials and will have the tampers completed by the end of November.
