Been a while since I've posted anything here.  My most recent accomplishment is pipe #25, which is currently for sale on Etsy.

Here are my two newest pipes, a little Dublin-style freehand and churchwarden in an "apple" shape.  I made both of them out of the same big block of plateaux briar. 

As usual, both are available for purchase at my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LiteraryWorkshop

An essay of mine has just been featured by Transpositions, an arts-and-theology blog hosted by the University of St. Andrews.  It's part of their Domestic Arts symposium this week, and the whole series is worth a look.

I love writing about my hobby (woodworking), but I know a lot of hobbyists who would like to write more about what they love but don't really know how.  This month's blog series is for such people:
