    He sent me a PM yesterday. He has received them. He may show them, he may not. I do know that he is happy with them.

    All that really matters is that he's happy with them.

    Thanks guys. I do this work out of the pure love of it. I love holding the pipe, working the briar, adding a flare to the pipe using the briar and grain that is there. I don't do this for monetary gain, but more for the reactions that I get from the pipe owner. I love nothing better than to hear everyone's input, good or bad. The tin of tobacco is simply a way to offset the cost of postage and materials. I have found a hobby that I absolutely love. Whenever I do work for PSF members I ask for an unopened tin of their favorite tobacco. This allows me to experience a wide range of blends, which is another love of mine.

    Give me a choice of sitting and watching TV with the wife in a warm cozy house, or sitting in my frigid workshop working briar, I will be in the workshop every time. Ask my wife. She thinks I'm crazy. She may be correct.

    Yep, Rekampip is sending a couple of pipestone pipes that I can work. Should be an interesting and possibly expensive experience. :xd:

    My rotary tool is variable speed and I have some carbide bits, so shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the info Bobby.
