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/).

This is a week ago..

I was working on this beauty this morning. With the stummel basically completed (just wax and polish to follow), I started on the stem.
 Being a bit impatient, I forced the tenon into the mortise and heard the faintest sound of wood going "crack".
We learn from our mistakes, I suppose...
