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/).

War of the Briar

This past week I had a stummel in the lathe with everything drilled and the shank shaped, just the bowl still to be turned. I was a bit hasty with the gouge and this was the result!
The smaller piece hit me in the stomach, with the larger flying past my left ear.
Who said pipemaking is for sissies?
