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.
Should you wish to have a look at my pipes, please drop in at my website (http://goussardpipes.com/).

The Dublin has been one of my favourite shapes for a long time and one that always is a pleasure to make. It has quite simple lines, but never fails to be elegant. This pipe, among other things, have unfortunately a lot of little pits all over the stummel. If I had the ability to do my own sandblasting, it would have been the ideal candidate for a try-out. It will still make for a really decent pipe. And that at a really decent price!
