    Been Away for a While

    Greetings it’s been a while since my last post. Been away for awhile due to a couple of things. Surgery was one of those things. Pretty much healed completely and decided it was time to get outdoors. Got to go hiking yesterday and enjoy the mountain where I’m visiting. :-) Wore my pipe hat...

    School's Band Concert

    Figured I'd hop on here while my daughter and her class walk off the stage and the 8th grade prepares to play. Watching them grow up brings so much joy to me. Seeing her persue playing musical instruments is so great, knowing it is something she wants to do. Well the 8th graders are warming up...

    Pool Question

    I was in my backyard today and heard water running. I saw a whole lot of water running off the neighbors concrete deck under the fence into my yard. Not knowing if a line broke I went over to investigate. I looked over the fence and he was by his pool filter with water gushing out of a pipe that...

    Restoring Missing Dots

    Here a question I haven't been able to find an answer too. When restoring pipe stems and you have half a dot because it isn't a rod inserted into the stem, but instead it paint dots or something else that is just added to the top layer like stickers. If those are removed how would one go about...

    Surgery Sucks

    Had surgery on Monday 31Oct, and figured I'd be about 90-95 percent by Wednesday. Well it's now Friday and I'd say I'm about 50 percent. Still having trouble just putting socks on and going to the restroom. Thought I'd be back at work by Monday, however my discharge says no lifting, pushing...

    Pins

    I have a question some might find odd. :D Has anyone seen pins with tobacco related logos for sale anywhere? While at the NASPC I got the This Pipe Life, and a NASPC pin with the logo on it. I then ordered the other three pins from NASPC that they have. I have them on my pipe smoking hat, and...

    Traded With HMHaines

    Haines was interested in the pipe I restored and fixed up and made an offer for trade. I told him what I was interested in and he went above and beyond by sending some extra items. Well here is everything. Thanks Haines!

    Reject No More (Pic Heavy)

    Here is a link to the original post. I was not quite sure how I was going to approach all the fills in this pipe. I then decided to just go for it, hope you enjoy.

    Country Gentleman

    I was talking with my grandfather the other night, about his dad smoking pipes. Sadly I never got to meet him, and he was the only other piper that I know of, besides a distant relative I never met. I have been wondering what pipes and tobaccos my great granddaddy smoked. My grandfather said he...

    Looking At A Lathe

    I'm seriously thinking of going for this lathe. Grizzly I was also considering the 10 x 22 lathe also however my chuck I have wont fit a 1 3/4 spindle. What size lathes do others on here use? Would a 20mm bore be ok for working stems with the larger stocks not fitting into the bore when...

    Here are the next four pieces of briar I plan on shaping. The one in the middle is going to be really interesting with the outside shape it has.

    Just Finished

    Done up the black one with the band today. I wanted to see if I could crank out a pipe in one day. I'm happy with the results for a quick turn around pipe. The diamond shank one I did last week. Wasn't quite sure how I wanted to stain it it so I went for a light stain.

    Stain Question

    Decided to try my hand at a freehand pipe. I got everything shaped the way I wanted it then time to stain. Every stain I've done so far came out the way I wanted it. This one not so much, I started off with black Fiebings leather alcohol dye. Then sanded to apply the next dye. The black didn't...

    NASPC Pipe Show

    I'm planning to make the trip to go to a pipe show next month in Dublin. I was wondering who is planning on going. How far have you traveled for a show? It's a 10 hour drive from here, but I've not been to Dublin before and would like to make it a trip on my bike. Hope to see some folks there.
