With over 30 years of experience in creating and repairing smoking pipes, I am pleased to devote my time fully to this craftsmanship. My journey in producing smoking pipes started in 1974 when my first pipe spawned from Persimmon Wood. I now make most of my pipes from Briar Burl Wood, Mountain Laurel, Olive Ash, Kingwood, Tulipwood, and hard Maple.
In 1976, under the tutelage of a well-respected craftsman Joe Giardina of Indiana, I learned the art of pipe repair. Through the years, my techniques have been refined and perfected. With attention to detail as well as the pride taken in my craftsmanship, the respect of my customers has been earned.
