Hello all,

I'm 25 , I work at a liquor store, I'm interested in Scotch, wine, whisk(e)y, gin , fine spirits in general... That led me to have interest in cigars, which quickly led me to pipes. My great grandfather was a pipe smoker, and I have his old pipe box. I recently purchased a new pipe and some tobacco. So I am new to all things pipe and wanted to come here, learn as much as I can , and try my hand at making a pipe soon. It maybe I make one and never make another and just enjoy the fine craftsmanship of others. Or it could become a new hobby of mine. Only time will tell.

I look forward to learning,

ScotchNPipes

Welcome,
Jump in when you are ready. A predrilled kit will get you started without the technical difficulty of the drilling.
Just a reminder, those fine spirits don't play well with power tools.
