Hi there, I just moved to Washington and want to learn how to do some hand carving! I'm especially interested in carving my own pipes to smoke some tobacco I'm planning to plant in the spring. I know it's going to take a lot of practice, time, and effort. I also know I'm going to mess up and probably make a couple that are totally unusable, and unattractive. I'm living in Tenino and would love to meet some one (or some people) who would be willing to show me the ropes so I can learn how to do some hand carving!
