PostSubject: Large Canadians, the pipe kind   Wed Dec 07, 2016 3:23 pm

Awhile back I decided to make a large Canadian for a special customer but, before I could finish it he bought one off me I had posted earlier not knowing that it wasn't the pipe I had intended for him. He liked it just the same so I put the Canadian up for sale thinking the only one that would want it is a fellow that has quite a collection of Canadians here. Well wouldn't ya know it someone else on another forum bought it before he had the chance of even seeing it. So, I decided to be fair and make him one but, that turned into two being that another customer wanted one also. So to keep this straight, that's 3 Canadians now. Well, wouldn't ya know it, a friend of the other good customer seen his pipe and wanted one so back to the shop for a 4th Canadian. Now I'm not complaining mind you but, I never thought that many people would like the thing. Now, remember the first customer that I intended the 1st Canadian for? Well he wants one now, so on to the 5th Canadian from a guy that doesn't do commissions, at least I didn't think I did. 5) So to make a long story a little shorter I thought someone might like to see the four I've done so far and I'll post the fifth when it's completed. They all measure in at approximately 8-1/8"L x 2-1/8"H x 1-1/2"W with a 7/8" chamber 2" deep weighing in at 76-82 grams.

Great looking pipes, Cart, but I have to admit to a bit of disappointment. When I read the thread title, I was expecting this:

Indeed! At over 300 pounds most of his adult life, John Candy was a BIG Canadian! (His comedic acting chops certainly didn't hurt either!).

Shame I can't see the photos myself. Somethings up here, Avatars show up but not the photos or emoticons.
I changed from Firefox because of the problems it gave me, now Chrome is screwing with me I reckon.

It's like getting hit with a Quadruple tap. Four shots. Four hits.

As always, sweet!

I just stamp them RDPipes and have enough trouble doing that half the time.
When I get famous maybe I'll start stamping them with the date, or even better yet....have someone else stamp the dang things for me.

And thank you sir!

No disrespect to our northern brothers, but I'm moving much farther south when I retire - to a far warmer and sunnier climate than the Pac NW!

They're all belters Ron. But if I had to choose, number 1 wins.

Very impressive work mate.
