    Its been a while since I posted, I have been making pipes for a year now, still haven't got them perfected, but getting there. This is the last one I did in December, A Magnum Bulldog, 7" long, bowl 1 3/8 x 3/4, flame grain w/ birdseye around bowl, Italian vulcanite stem w/wht and blk acrylic accent.

    Edited by jvnshr: Title capitalization (please check Rule #9). Picture link fixed.

    Ah, that's a looker. I like the two-tone smooth finish and the unique band. That's a distinctive take on a 'dog, nice.

    Thank you sir. I've created 21 pipes in 22 months, so really 1 a month. Pipes are easy, selling them to buy more materials is a pain.

    Pipe shows would be one potential outlet, if you don't have to travel distances to do it. Taking photos and doing the administrative work does take away time from carving the pipes, I've heard carvers complain. My go-to carver only sells at the State Fair and the in-state pipe show, and not online at all. You might try selected ones here on Forums. It's competitive. As my in-laws say truly about running cattle in Missouri, they have to keep jobs to support the farm.

    I'm limited on options. I am primary caregiver to my 90 yo mother whom has multiple health problems. I haven't worked since last year at this time. I haven't posted anything here, as I'm not sure of Kevin's sales policy. I posted some on MEWE.com pipe smokers group, and I have a T.A.Allen Pipes facebook page. I am not doing this as a form of income just as a hobby to keep me sane, and to sell as a way to buy more material. Thanks everyone for kind words ! T. A. Allen (a.k.a. Buzkirk)

    Very nice pipes! Considering what you have on your plate, 1 pipe a month is a great output.

    Съемка фотографий и выполнение административной работы отнимают время у вырезания труб, я слышал, как резчики жалуются

    unfortunately it is. I have a friend who is interested in photography and also smokes pipes. I agreed with him on barter. He makes me a photo of my pipes and I make pipes for him.
