  • Pete gave us a nice history of Briar Works. His fascinating explanation of both factory and handmade pipe craft was quite informative. The plans for the Muletown Show seem to guarantee a good time for all levels of pipe enthusiasts.
    The musical selection was the perfect coda to your conversation with Pete, who is “still a dreamer…a believer.”
    You are absolutely correct about the need to spend a little time or a little cash to keep your pipes smoking sweet.
    Thanks for a very entertaining show.

  • Cringle Flake is just okay in its third version. Could be better with few years of age, but I don’t think so.
    It was a very good interview with Pete Provost. I was really surprised that Briarworks makes only 3000 to 4000 pipes. We tried a few at a KC Pipe show and found them to be great smokes or really bad smokes. This of course was the first year in operation for them. It takes a little while to get things going right.
    Their Pipe Show sounds like a grand time for one and all. Wish I could go.
    I think as a music maker Pete is a talented pipe carver.
