Pipemaking

There are as many ways to make a pipe as there are pipe makers. Every pipe maker approaches pipe making differently, from design to final finishing there are a million tiny nuances and small touches that distinguish one pipe maker from another. Pipe making for me is an ongoing experiment on what works and what could work better. I think the constant experimentation is to me one of the most endearing aspects of pipe making. It keeps the process fresh and gives me a lot to consider as I make my pipes. With the idea that there are a lot of right ways to make a pipe firmly in mind here is how I make my pipes… at the moment. These pages are still under construction so there is much incomplete or missing that will be added over the next weeks.
