Jude made pipes for the All Soul's Episcopal Church organ in San Diego, CA (1986) and the smaller "mixture pipes" for Arizona State University's organ in Tempe, AZ (1991). She also made pipes for two organs built by Charles M. Ruggles Pipe Organs including the Calvary United Methodist Church in Brownsburg, Indiana (1994).

These video series by Martin Pasi on pipe making is included for general interest. Jude no longer makes pipes.
