The project is complete and ready to ship. Black foam rubber was added to cushion the glassware.

Beautiful work & wood stock selection, Sir!

Best,

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

The only question is which bottle shall I test it on?

And which cigar?

Great! Now think PIPE.  Wink Cheesy.........................Joe

I do enjoy a pipe now and then Joe.  A few years back I was on a genealogy search for my southern ancestors.  I discovered a company in Virginia that still grows the same blend that my ancestors grew back in the 1700’s in Virginia, I thought if I smoked some of the same tobacco it might somehow bring them closer to me.  I have to say it was a pleasant smoke, but I knew nothing about the care of fine tobacco products and consequently the leaf went dry as a bone on me. I also knew nothing about the care of a good pipe and now I need a flexible drill bit to clean it!  I’m smarter lately, now I have humidors, dedicated Tupperware, hydration packs, hygrometers, all the fun toys required for the care and keeping of fine tobacco and fine tobacco products.

It's a true art to enjoying a great smoke out of a great pipe. I have several decanters of mixed tobaccos. I often mix my own and like the Virginia Tobaccos, they are very mild and mix well. Some of the Italian pipes are good as well as the English, But they can get expensive.

Great work on the whiskey case (Irish).  I'm another pipe smoker that would appreciate such a case for my Ferndown pipes on the boat.  Great story of finding Virginia tobacco with a link to a family history.
