Handcrafted Pipes by Victor Rimkus
Here I will show pictures from my workshop.
This photo is not from my shop. This is an example of how not to drill an offset. I have a pipe drilled like this and it leaks at the mortise. This, plus a ramp in the mortise/draft combine to make turbulance in the airflow, a moisture trap, gurgle, and a messy pipe.
To each, their own. A lot of pipe makers do this to get a shape. I do not.
