The main navigation panel sports headings of, Brands and Makers, Materials and Construction, Pipe Making, a very helpful Marks and Logos page and more.

The Pipe Making subsection of Pipedia serves as the Wiki home of the PipemakersForum.com. Much of what appears here is gleaned from that forum. I highly recommend reading and participation in the Pipemakers forum in addition to reading and contributing here on the wiki.

For beginner pipemakers, there is an extensive section on pipe making Materials and Construction that includes a list of tools and resources for pipe making tools and materials.

Knowoing that this site is filled with tons of useful information that would take you weeks if not months to filter through, there is also a page with extensive links to more information in books and other publications.
