Winter is upon us here in Montana, settling in along riverbanks & deep in the valleys. In the heart of Missoula, Micah Yeti Cryder is handcrafting pipes in his workshop, one at a time, detail by detail. His passion for woodworking has birthed The Yeti Pipe Co. , garnering the attention of admirers & customers worldwide. Micah is quick to admit that the intricacy of his creations has taken countless hours of refining but it’s easy to see, as I watch Micah craft a pipe in real time, that he is currently creating some of the best pipes you can find. The end result is undeniably beautiful and unique. His description of his work is simple:
“Treat each pipe as an original creation, never before seen, and never to be repeated. Just like the owners of the pipes themselves”.
