I like to have a smoke on a pipe from time to time,especially when Im camping in the woods and am sitting by the fire side with a dram of single malt. The pipe I own was on its last legs so I ordered a corncob pipe but now they tell me its not in stock and I will have to wait 2 weeks. So I thought why not make my own pipe so thats what I did. I used the bit[mouth piece] of my old pipe. I made the bowl out of some Ash wood that has been seasoned for 6 years and I used bamboo for the shank [tube]. I also made a leather tobacco pouch to carry my tobacco and pipe in.
