Bruce Weaver was born in 1951 and is a pipe maker living in Brentwood, Tennessee, which is located just outside of Nashville. He first began making pipes in 2006 after being a collector of Dunhills for most of his adult life, because he got the itch to make something for himself. His mom was an artist and Bruce wanted to see if he had any artistic ability, or was simply a craftsman; as it turns out, he is both. Taking some time to learn some about pipemaking from Lee Von Erck, Bruce began making pipes loosely based on the English classics with preform stems and styling similar to Lee. Later, in 2009, he started learning about making handmade pipes from Todd Johnson who moved to Tennessee. From Todd, Bruce learned how to make handcut stems and use Delrin tenons, as well as shaping a pipe on a sanding disk.

His shaping blossomed and he has since been known as an affable guy who makes pipes that are aggressively blasted to show very intricate growth rings. Indeed, Bruce fiddled with blasting techniques before finding one that was different from everyone else. Though very time-consuming, they are easily recognizable. All of his pipes feature handcut stems from vulcanite rods, or bakelite, and all feature Delrin tenons. Some of his accents can include ivory, bamboo, boxwood, and other hardwoods.
