Traffic out front of Pheasant Run sucks. Must be a mile or so each way.

Seriously, the traffic backs up out front. Heard talk of 45 min waits. Come early.

Also, tonight is Big Burn Chicago. Google it. Cigars, beer, wine, women, DJ etc Huge tent dwarfing ours.

Our tent has heat I was told. They should be able to make it comfortable later this week.

I need to go eat.

Later

Headed for the courtyard. About as far from the DJ as I can get.

Pipe seminar pipe. In the first you can see what I was trying to do. A Peter Heeshen style "P" pipe. The block really was not designed for it, but I thought I would give it a go.

And you can see how it turned out.

Yep. A couple sand pits appeared. The one on the shank appeared right during the last buff and wax. Yep, goes clear into the airway. My fault for trying to get that curved effect to the top of the shank and made it a bit thin. Then the sand pit appeared. Just my luck. I will fill it and it will smoke just fine. Fairly light in weight. I stained it after 100 grit sanding with a purple stain. That gave me a nice contrast in the grain as I sanded the surface stain away.

Pre-show has started. Looks like a busy day. Comfortable in the tent.

I didn't buy a thing, but lunch today. Found I have expensive tastes. Will look seriously tomorrow.


Said hi to Doc Watson. Many others from past shows and met some new people. If you wandered by that first round table in the smoking tent, you passed me by.

Keep the updates coming Carlos! cheers

Was uncle Peter in on the carving seminar this year? Or did you just have it in your mind to recreate your favorite smoker?

I am told that Peter checked himself into hospital. Possible pneumonia was mentioned. Hope he gets over it soon.

Just thought I would see how close I could make something similar. No way for me to engineer the bowl and airway as Peter does it, as these were pre-drilled. I would not know how to do that anyway. Lots to learn yet.

What Clay said: thanks, Carlos! And very, very nicely done on your acquisitions, especially that Canoe Paddle; I've never seen anything like it, but just going off a couple of pictures I have to say it's one of the coolest designs I've yet seen. Enjoy!
