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/).

I have a commissioned elephant's foot that I am working on at the moment. When push comes to shove, I really prefer straight grain or flame grain, but this birdseye is really something, hey?
 It is such a pleasure working with briar, so many possibilities with this type of grain. Just imagine all pipes being made from, well, for example, meranti or oak? Boring.
