    I got my October TAD order in from Just for Him. 8 oz of Treebeard, 8 oz of Old Toby and 8 oz of Shortcut to Mushrooms. I didn't think these Middle Earth series tobies should be stuffed into some generic mason jar or plexi-canister, so I looked around on the internet.

    I found Oliveart in the UK and sent them an email. Maria agreed to make me 3 canisters out of olivewood with custom dimensions of 5" tall with a 4" inside diameter. I got the canisters in and they are really nice, with a wonderful grain. I stuffed the ziplocked bags from JFH in each and they fit easily. Once I have my pipe-toby humidor completed, I'll dump the baccy directly into the canisters w/no baggie.

    I'll try to get pictures up in the next couple of evenings.

    Hi,

    Ditto about the pix - am interested in this as you say they'll make custom sized containers and I have a rack I'd possibly be interested in having one made to fit,

    Best meantime
