    Between the day job and the pipe work, I've been working 16 hours a day, seven days a week for the past yen weeks or so. There's really not much nose left to grind.

    Those pipes pipes are stepping into the deep end of the pool! My favorite is that 1916 Comoy's pocket pipe.
    What we got in this area was a bit of fluke, I think. For the most part, it wasn't that bad except for the metric shit ton of rain that was dropping. However, there was a 30-60 second window when all hell broke lose and parts of the area are still recovering from that. Since the shop isn't attached to the house it wasn't covered by the insurance, which is part of the reason why I'm moving a good portion of it into the house in the next couple of weeks. Lesson learned.

    Anthony, those pipes look like they just came from the hands of the Artists who created them. Outstanding work...That cannot be said enough. Humble you may be, but Sir, you are a Master Craftsman in your own right.

    Keep up the great work, and keep the pics coming. Few things compare to the beauty of a well crafted (and restored) pipe.
    Take care and check six!

    Good to see you Anthony and am so glad you decided to stay in the biz. I couldn't post yesterday because I was unable to pry my eyes away from your pipe pics.
    I can resist anything but temptation.
