Greetings from Japan. Thanks for allowing me to join the group - I look forward to learning from you all!

Real name: Chris
Age: 47
Location: Sanjo Japan
Years a pipe smoker: 27 years off and on.
How you got into pipe making: Love to make anything, find more enjoyment in the entire process of creating than just the end result. Haven't made a pipe yet but that will change shortly, long way to go...
Other interesting facts:
Been in Japan for 23 years - started out as a research scientist on a 2 year ex-pat stint, got kidnapped by my now-wife (don't know how she puts up with me), started a company as import/distributor, then started manufacturing. We manufacture eyewear and furniture. Passionate woodworker and tool freak. Love the entire process from design through creation then using the end product.

Really appreciate all the info here, thank you so much for sharing your experience, knowledge, and opinions!
Chris
