I don't know If this is the right forum or not it's about DIY kinda so I chose here, If the powers that be want to move it I understand, and I'll try harder next time Very Happy 

Today I went to pipe club at the local B&M and to my surprise there was full time pipe maker there today, Thomas James, so we talked a bit and I showed him the pipes I took so that he could tear them up with some critiques, he showed me a couple things about how I could better improve on tenon and mortise stuff, he also said that I could go out to his shop and watch a bit to see how he does things, so I am pumped about that, I mean everyone at the pipe makers forum gives good advice but sometimes, for me any ways, to watch something happen, rather than to read about it sinks in a little faster and better
and I got my blocks and ebonite rod from Vermont freehand today too so all in all it has been a good saturday

Missed the pipe club today but Thomas is a great guy. I ended up getting a pipe from him and couldn't be happier with it.

You are so lucky!  I'm the only person I know that smokes a pipe.  I'm completely on my own when it comes to anything pipe related.  Absorb all available knowledge if you have the opportunity!

Brian, equally YOU are a MASTER in your craft! I have the evidence in my hand!

No disrespect to Thomas James at all here, but your pipes are TREMENDOUS!!

Cool 


Cheers,
