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.

This pipe was made from the last block of a batch of briar. Externally, the block looked to be full of promise, and I wanted to make use of the grain as best possible. Eventually I came up with this shape. Unfortunately the block didn't give me the results I was looking for. A good number of flaws and sandpits appeared during shaping. I really wanted to see how the shape evolve, so I left them as is. Lovely shape, lovely staining, shame about the flaws!
