Very interested. I’ve been tempted to try to make a pipe. We have osage orange around here which is a very very hard wood.

I have noticed that many pipe makers use Briar Wood. What is the reason for that?

from what i am told it is the best wood for the bowl.that is not affected by the burning of tobbaco and it does not change the taste of it.thats why i use applewood or cherry for the stems. it does change the taste.peace shinju
