Ordering Overview

Upon selecting a pipe shape the available custom options are as follows: Size, Finish, Grain Alignment, Stain Colour, Stem Material and Accents.

To reserve an order I request a $100 USD deposit. 

When I begin working on your pipe I will first notify you and then update you with process pictures as it develops. Once completed you will receive finished pictures and measurements of the pipe for your approval before final payment is requested, and the pipe is shipped.
