New member here. I have only been smoking a pipe for 6 months but I am a dedicated convert, so much so that I have begun making my own pipes. In for a penny, in for a pound of briar and ebonite.

Anyway, all my best to the brothers (and sisters?),

Tim in Texas

Welcome! That's one hell of a way to jump into the hobby. Of course we'll be expecting pictures of your pipes. Laughing

Thanks for the welcome. The pipes are not really ready for prime time. I am only on number 5 and each time I learn a lot. By around Number 20 I should have pretty good quality. Making a good smoker, I am finding, is not that difficult, just a matter of good briar, drilling angles and a nice open smoke hole. What is really hard is shaping and making it look nice. I see a lathe in my future. Here is a pretty bad iphone pic of 2 of them. Should I ever attempt to sell some when I learn the craft, I will trust you all to destroy this picture.

Thanks for the comment on my horse. That was a picture as a one year old. He is four now and feeling a little neglected while I spend all my time in the workshop.
