Has been diving into smoking pipes in summer 2021. Ordered some MM cobs, seconds straight from Missouri. And of course had to fix some of them right on the start. Since I am restoring briars for my own purpose, and even finished a few, a billiard, bent apple and sort of a duke/ don from blocks of briarwood and rods of ebonite. Good smokers, so far, but far from where one can get with a lathe. Looking for inspiration here. Often to lazy to correspond, sorry for that.
