    I get asked to do a lot of different types of woodworking, so when this idea came about, I really looked forward to building it. This build was a gift from me to one of our Country's servicemen who just returned home. Of course, when he shipped me the case, he did it in true BOTL fashion and...

    I enjoy bourbon and I thought I disliked scotch until my friend let me try some Lagavulin. Not sure if it was 12 or 16yr. But it was the tastiest smoky almost bacon like flavor. Now I definitely need to get a bottle a scotch but would hope theres something out there alot less pricy thats...

    So a couple weeks ago we were at our SoCal Herf and I was talking to Dave (1029Henry) about how much I liked the Fuente Anejo line. So he told me about Tampa Sweethearts having a good sampler pack at a good price. So I had him PM me the address to the place. Fast forward to last Tuesday. I went...
  4. Cigar Accessory Questions
    I have a Lotus lighter, which I had refilled once at a cigar shop and it did fine. I ordered some butane refills online (the Lotus brand, no less) and figured I'd try doing it myself. Now it shoots out 12 inch flames on the lowest setting. (I can't post links, but you can probably figure out...

    I figured this would best be put in the drink forum. I wanted to test out my new buffing wheels so I turned a couple of bottle stoppers. The purple one is purple heart. It is a hard wood from Central/ South America. The wood when first cut from a tree is Brown, after some time it quickly turns...

    Well I have been meaning to make a cigar punch for some time now. I had a camo blank that I thought would be perfect. I also turned a matching pen to go along with the cigar punch. The cigar punch has a spring loaded cap ejector that took a little figuring out to put together. The pen takes...

    I just got hit by Firedawg. I saw that he missed the Tambo group buy so I offered to trade him a stick of Tambo. We made a deal for some Sugar Barrel but he decided to include a tin of MacBaren Virginia Flake and a tin of C&D Burley Flake #1 as well as 2 kinds of pipe cleaners with the SB. Puff...

    So I message Jeff (jbrown287) to see if he would part with one of the HTF Viaje Summerfests. I have been wanting to smoke all that is Viaje lately and I knew he just found some. Not only found some , but found the really rare ones that were mistakes. Viaje Summerfests were intended to be made...

    I've finally founds a B&M that sells CCs that I really liked and picked up some great cigars. Bolivar Petite Corona, Punch Punch, Hoyo De Monterrey Epicure #2, RyJ Wide Churchhill, Juan Lorez #2 And last but not least!!!!! Ok, just kidding about that last one! The owner of the shop was...

    Well it finally happened, I turned 40 today. I had a nice B-day with my family. My son woke me up this morning with “Daddy happy day“. He is two and he calls birthdays "happy day" instead of saying happy birthday. I was born on my mothers birthday so she celebrated her 60th. We had a nice...

    Any suggestions on things to try? Was thinking of trying some form of scotch (never tried it), but need to keep it on the lower-end pricewise. Maybe some form of ale... I'm really inexperienced in these things. What's worth trying?

    Tashaz and I have been conversing for some months now about Spanish Cedar as he has had trouble sourcing it in Australia. As such I said I would source it and send it over. It took some time but eventually I got and, packaged it and posted it. As a thank you he kindly said he'd put some smokes...

    I have been reading around here long enough to see a few threads discussing humidity beads that turned shades of yellow after prolonged use in a humidor. Mostly the posters seem to be worried that their yellowed beads may not be properly regulating humidity for them. It seems to me that the...

    So I got my Johs Dublin in the mail today from Smokingpipes. BEAUTIFUL day outside, so I decided to break her in. I made sure to puff nice and slow, and whenever she got a bit warm I backed off. About half way through the bowl, I look at my fingers that are holding the bowl, and they're...

    Hey guys, Softscrub's ad took over this morning and covered half the website. thought you'd like to know. It was easy to close, but it's my understanding that you guys don't like these ads either. Pic attached.

    I'm very much considering getting a wine cooler to convert into a humi soon. I'm curious to know what you guys think is the best model for this.

    Today was hard... Not much more I can say about it but came home Lit up a Paddy 64 and now I am in heaven, has to be one of the best sticks I have had to date. Too bad I only bought one, damn they are pricey, too. Time to start saving ;) But just goes to show you a great cigar goes along way.

    Ordered some Havana VI Angeles from Leaf and Ale, and we all know that Mike cannot count. In a prior conversation he asked me how many guys smoke with me over here. He added some nice tagalongs for them. Mike, you are awesome brother, you will have much of my business in the future, hands...

Oh, there is a pic of me in my outfit for my first herf. Yes, thats about the minimum standard of dress Im afraid. Still, its...

    A few people have told me that some of the labels are upside down. After inspection of my boxes I found some that had the label upside down. If it is lit from the wrong end it may unravel. You have to look real close at the wrapper and how the turns go. The last turn at the head should be on...
