Combine paths in Photoshop that are not closed?

Hello,

I need to create a drawing of curved pipe using Photoshop CS3. Not realistic, but with shading so it looks 3-D and more interesting than a solid color. I'm "beginning" to get comfortable with the pen tool... All I can think of is creating a path, making a large "stroke", and adding layer styles to it.

Now I have 2 curved paths.  When I go to "combine" them, PS "closes" them. So when I go to stroke, it's not a continuous line, it's shapes. Does anyone know how to combine paths without closing them?

Thanks!!

You can kind of combine them by 1) try clipping mask or 2) link layers. This will drag both of them simultaneously. There's no other way that I know of to combine them while still keeping the paths.
