Welcome to my world of pipes. On these pages you will see some of what goes on in my workshop. A bit of work-in-progress, mess-ups (they do happen!) and also some other pipe-related posts.
I love talking about and discussing pipes, so feel free to contact me at charl.chillfactor@gmail.com.

I am quite happy with this pipe. The only part done on the lathe was the tenon of the stem, the rest was all done by hand. Because of a couple of small flaws on the outside of the bowl, I originally thought I would rusticate. But then after staining and seeing the grain on the front of the bowl, it seemed like a waste. Lovely pipe and one of my favourite shapes.
