Pipe smoker and tinkerer.
I had a couple of corn cob pipes that I did not like how they smoked. I also had a couple of wooden pen blanks that did not suit me as far as pens. One day I had the idea of modifying those cobs into a pipe that did not have a filter and would use a vulcanite stem instead of the cheap plastic stems that are OEM. I liked the results.
I made 2 more from unsmoked pipes and asked for volunteers from a pipe smoker's forum to test them. They gave high grades to them and I started getting requests for them through the forums.
I also dabble in pen making and other things that can be turned on a lathe. Maybe what I really like to do is make round things out of square wood.
All items are produced under the thoughtful supervision of my two dogs...
