    Greetings from NY

    Good morning all. I'm a long time New Yorker moving to California for work. I've been smoking pipes (and cigars) for the last 15+ years. While I've found my cigar sweet spot, I haven't quite found my pipe tobacco go-to and have been sampling different kinds. Right now I'm on SPC
    vashon island and plum pudding.

    I started restoring old estate pipes as a fun hobby. I then moved into carving my own pipes- doing most of the initial shaping with rasps, files, and my belt sander until I feel confident in the process to invest in a lathe.

    I really enjoy pipe smoking and carving because they're a great break from the hectic pace of the world. Carving pipes is also a great creative outlet. I hope to keep learning more from all of you and keeping up this great tradition of pipe smoking!
