So the holidays are over and it's time to get back to life as usual, ha, as if life is ever usual! Anyhow hope you all had a merry Christmas and a happy new years. Well now it is time to leave the festivities and distractions behind and return the pure and important things in life and by that I of course mean pipes, tobaccos, brews and other such glorious things. Along with my greetings into 2012 I present to you my third attempt at pipe making. This time I endeavored to create a rusticated free-hand poker and all in all I am happy with the results and noting the flaws to try to avoid on the next. I had planned to keep this one for myself but haven't quite decided on it due to my dad's affinity for this particular pipe... hmmm, such decisions.
