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/).

On the bench

Here are a couple of pipes that I'm busy with at the moment.

At the back is a little chocolate volcano with a wild olive stem ring. A little pocket rocket!
The pipe in the middle is an acorn bamboo with really gorgeous grain. The growth rings are absolutely stunning, making me really tempted to blast. But not a single little pinprick flaw shows on this one. It is really big though, so it is not going to work for clenchers.
The one in the front is a stumpy chubby bent from cross cut ebauchon. This is my type of pipe. It is short enough to fit into a pocket, with a big enough bowl to last me quite a while.
All  three should be on the website in a couple of days, if you want to see some finished photos.
