A pipers workshop
My workshop is in a really great place called Mama Roses kitchen. It's close to the coffee,snacks and conversation . I work at the table. Its just not creative to be shut off by my self. Here are a few of my tools and stuff. Will be back later to talk about them. Have fun looking.
I do most of the wood removal with these small wood planes and a pocket knife.
After step drilling, the chanter bore is cleaned with my handforged reamer. It is hard work, but is well worth the effort.
