  • Enjoyed the show tonight. Nice to hear Jeff and also listen to Kaitlyn’s story and very happy to see a younger person doing pipe repair and restoration.

  • I wasn’t sure about this ask a pipe maker segment leading up to it, but Jeff made it very interesting. Fantastic interview. I may make pipes, but I trust Kaitlyn to restore estate pipes. They are two separate and distinct skill sets, and I am thrilled she is continuing the time honored tradition. Among many others, she restored my oldest Kaywoodie, a 1927 stinger with push tenon before the screw in was developed. Back then the stinger was so large as to fill the whole shank, so it takes care to get everything fixed right. I am always impressed with her attention to detail, and her ability to bring some pipes back from the brink of death. We are proud to have her in Briar Nation and it made me very happy that you chose to interview her. Nice music selection, I enjoy when you share your favorites.

  • Good show, though the Pipe Parts might been the best part. I thought the ask the carver section might have more to it than just one question. Unfortunately I don’t carve pipes so I kind of spaced out on that part anyway. Nice interview with Kaitlyn. I couldn’t figure out whether she was a real repair person at all or just a refurbisher with some modest repair skills.
