Pipemaking again at last!

For some time I have busy making work for a commission.  It is a set of three easels that sit on tabletops.  Here is a foto of one.

The three easels took up all my work space in the workshop, so I could not do any turning. Since Monday I have been able to get back on the lathe.  Check out the heap of turnings! [See the gas bottle in the background for comparison.  The heap is a metre high.]

It takes a bit of work to make a heap that size!  The rain is needed to wet the shavings so that they start to decompose.  Useful rain!  Lovely rain!  Dearest rain! 

I now have a whole heap of pipes to tune and "finish".

There are some twenty or thirty pipes waiting for me.  This was taken at 8am today. By 9am I had tuned and drilled seven of them. [All the Mahogany ones- the dark ones]  Not a bad work output.  I was taking my time to do a really good job.  Tuning is the most time-consuming job.  It can't be rushed. So I consider that good use of time.

I completed all the mahogany pipes I have turned in this set.  With no more mahogany, there will be no more Mahogany pipes.  They are beautiful with a full and clear tone.  

If you want one email me on <<[email protected]>> while I still have some!!!

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
