About

1860's Pipe Smokers Inspire 21st Century Carver

I have done various types of woodworking during my life. I even made a living as a custom cabinet and furniture maker for a short time. I am also a Civil War re-enactor. While watching Civil War re-enactment films, it occurred to me that many of the soldiers were smoking pipes or cigars. I had smoked a pipe as a young man in the service and I decided to see if I would enjoy it after a thirty five year hiatus. When an old meerschaum fell apart as I was smoking it and a recent used purchase burned through on the third bowl of tobacco, I decided that I could make pipes that lasted longer than that. As a result, I began carving pipes out of maple and cherry hardwoods before trying Briar. I am excited by the constant challenge to improve my pipe making skills and learning new techniques such as sandblast finishing. I also discovered that I enjoyed repairing and refurbishing used (estate) pipes and reselling them. I now have a small number of clients for whom I carve custom pipes on commission.

I traveled around the country and various parts of the world while I was in the service and still treasure those cultural experiences.

Some of my other interests are bicycling, camping, canoeing and socializing with friends.

    I have been able to combine my love of woodworking with the pleasure of pipe smoking. I enjoy creating functional objects that express the beauty of the material I am using. Working with my hands relaxes and rejuvenates me.
