I found the link to this on French site FumeursdePipe, and thought it was well worth passing along as it isn’t often that videos on meerschaum pipemaking surface. The thing that interests me about this video is that he works the meerschaum dry, while I was taught to work with it wet because it is very hard on the tools when shaped and drilled dry. But, P Bargiel has far superior quality meerschaum to work with than what I have used, so it is likely that his material is simply softer and less “rock-like”.
