Scott Thile

Scott Thile is musician and piano tuner when not making pipes. Between these activities Scott found time to start and still maintains the website pipedia (wiki for pipes). Music  is a mixture of mathematics and inspiration/perspiration. So, it is not surprising that Scott added pipe making to his repertoire, starting in 2004. It needs the same fusion of precision & creativity as music. All his pipes have a 5/32nd draft hole and mouthpieces are hand cut from Grade A German ebonite.

Scott is pretty much a self-taught pipe maker  who started in 2004.  Along the learning curve he spent some time with Todd Johnson & the late Bruce Weaver. His main influence is the fresh Amero-Danish aesthetic.
