    Well, I rolled my first cigar with the supplies that @webmost sent me this past week. It’s not the prettiest cigar that I’ve ever seen, but I had a blast rolling it and can’t wait to smoke it. I can already tell rolling your own is going to be a very slippery slope. Thanks again Robert for giving me the opportunity to give this a try, I really enjoyed it!

    Here’s a few pics of the process...

    Congrats man! That has to feel like quite the accomplishment, can’t wait to hear how it smokes when the time comes. I have yet to try my hand from the kit @webmost sent me, this is making me antsy to get at it

    Looks good @Jody !!
    Let us know how it smokes!

    Work on the bunching and smokability longer than you think you should before you worry about the looks. I didn't and have wasted lots of tobacco because of it.

    Thank you guys for the comments. I can already tell I’m going to really enjoy this side of the hobby.

    Thanks. I going to give it a few days to dry out a little theni plan on firing it up. I’ll let everyone know how it goes. Whatcha waiting for, get in there and get to rolling. (y)

    Yeah, bunching is where I had the most trouble. I took me a couple try’s to get it halfway even with no soft spots in the bunch. Thanks for the advice.

    First time I've ever seen the exact rolling board as mine. Did you get that at an Ace Hardware?

    I grabbed it from Walmart last night. Mine could stand to be a little smoother but it’s nothing I can’t fix with a little sanding.

    @Jody I should clarify. I started overfilling to make them look better sub consciously. You can smoke under filled easier than over filled

    It'll get smooth on its own if you roll a few thousand cigars on it.

    That is a comment that makes me really want to go bananas with this. Just waiting for my mezzaluna and then I give it a shot!
