You guys that can carve pipes are a source of wonder to me. I dabbled in woodwork as a young man but would never try to undertake to make a pipe. It's just not something that I'd feel comfortable doing.
I'd much rather come up with a new beer, or write a new song. That's where my creative juices seem to flow.
Rock on rev. I'll be interested to see the progression of this project. I like the blowfish style, although I don't own one.
