I have to get back at it this winter, I've been thinking about the stems for a while now. I'll bite the bullet and buy about $100 worth so I have a few to play with. I can make a few different types with less wood if I add the stems.Don't do it just for me man, seriously. No need to get all set up again for a couple pipes. But thanks anyhow.
Winter projects, it was 28C here yesterday afternoon.....leaves are starting to fall though and the mornings are cool once again.
There's something about snow that makes me get into pipe making...., I use a Foredom electric carving tool to shape them and a lot of dust flies when I use it, I built a dust extractor that contains a lot of it but that stuff floats. It's really my main excuse to not making them now.
My garage is sorta the last stop before the dump, I put stuff in there I don't want to deal with at the moment...Ah I've letter go badly this season and I have to get atter pretty soon....I gotta get my car in there before we get any storms so works gotta get done pronto.
