I am an aging lifelong woodworker and boat restorer and builder, retired and living in coastal NC. I have a 20’ x 40’ woodworking shop with radial, band, and table saw, planer, jointer, router table, lathe and drill presses. Also have a 1940s era 10ER Shopsmith and still have all my fingers after using it for over 40 years. I am a member of a woodworker group based in Oriental— it includes some master woodworkers, several boatbuilders, and a few artists. For several years I have read the forums on ncwoodworker and learned a lot.

BTW I also collect antique woodworking and machinist’s tools. My 50 year collection includes drill presses, saws, planes, boxwood rulers, drills, levels and much more. My wife and I have a booth at the Franklin Antique Mall in New Bern, NC where we sell antique tools, scientific and nautical instruments, and much more.

This is one of the smoothest working, best administered websites and forums that I have ever encountered. Looking forward to getting to know you folks and learning some new skills.

Are there any (smoking ) pipe makers active in this group? I am just learning how to make pipes and need all of the advice that I can get! Also looking for a source for high quality Mediterranean briar.

Larry,

Welcome. Thanks for becoming an active member. While I have not seen her post on here in some time, Milissa Dewey (Flootsie) had turned some pipes. You might be able to contact her through their website www.chessspy.com

Welcome, Larry - we have a place in Merrimon right across the river from Oriental. I've been spending time in that area since my summers at Don Lee, so it's great to have you on board.
