It is not likely that there is one detail in the construction of a pipe that Bo has not investigated. And if there was something with which he was not very happy, he has found a better way to do it.

On pipes with a shank of bamboo or horn the standard method is that they are fitted with a metal tube. In Bo's opinion there is a risk that they will come loose given time and thus uses a screw. It is an ordinary steel screw, bought at the ironmonger's, which he drills himself. Anyone who has tried to drill a hole in a steel screw knows the implications. "Is it not very cumbersome?" I ask. "Of course it takes time," Bo answers, "and I get full of spots in the face from all the oil I have to use, but that does not matter when the result is good." This is a typical remark from Bo. No effort is too great as long as the result is perfect.

When Bo turns the tenons he takes the time of the year into consideration. Otherwise a tennon made in the summer will be loose in the winter (or the other way around - I am not sure of which). So there is a difference of a few hundreds between a tennon made in the summer and one made during the colder season.
