One early evening, in the Fall of 1969, a young Rutgers University student used the basement workshop in a friend’s house in Bernardsville, New Jersey to make a tobacco pipe from a piece of cherry wood. In January of 1970, along with two partners, he started a business to make tobacco pipes from domestic hardwoods and sell them to stores. The Mill had begun.
In 1995 The Mill added a new wood to its inventory. Known as Rainbow Wood, its brightly-colored laminated composition makes it possible to craft multicolored designs from one piece of wood. In 2001, another laminated wood, known as Extreme Wood was added to the line. Tradeshows and catalog mailings remain the main sources of advertising for the business. What also remains is the The Mill’s commitment to quality and service which have helped make it a supplier of fine, exotic wood tobacco pipes for more than 33 years.
