These easy plans show you how to make a pipe in your workshop. With a little skill and know-how you can make one yourself.

Plans include Pictures, Diagrams and instructions to complete this DIY project.

The plans call for Briar root. (I'm sure you could use another wood if Briar root is unavailable) Traditionally used for centuries in the art of pipe making because of its durability, close texture, burled grain and beauty; its ability to withstand years of hard use and hold a natural polish. The best briarwood is found along the Mediterranean coastal areas, Algeria, Greece, Sicily and Italy. The roots are used for pipe bowls and it takes anywhere from 100 to 175 years growth for the root to develop into a large enough piece from which small blocks can be cut.
After the roots have been dug, dried and cut, they are sorted into sizes and grades. It always pays to select the best grade for a really good pipe.

I spend a lot of time digitally enhancing old vintage patterns to make them larger font and easier to read to make your hand work experience be best it can be.

****This pdf listing is what all downloads should be, easy, exactly what I was expecting! In the middle of making this cute bed now and instructions may be vintage, but it was a good choice! Will be back to check out more crochet patterns.

****Can't wait to start this. Easy to read and understand. Should be a nice quick project my kitty will love!

****I was looking for a pattern which could be a picnic blanket rather than a throw / afghan for a bed. I liked the look of this pattern and now I've read it I really like it as it is completely different to other patterns I own already.

****High quality item and very quick delivery! Thanks!
