    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Les, Don't you ever sleep? Seems you "turn" these out pretty quick.

    I like this one. Do you keep the length the same when you make a "one piece"? The wood on this one has just enough grain to make it stand out.
    It's not what you achieve in life...It's what you overcome!

    Thanks Tom.

    Yes, I do keep the Longwood's the same length as the 2 piece Cigars.
    There is room to make the a bit longer as well.
