Take your time and make one the best you can. This is a good exercise for the experienced to guide and the novice to learn while in the process of making. I'm not so sure of providing a pipe that was already made. I would like to see participation regardless of skill level.


I concur. The PITH is intended to be a part of one's journey towards mastering the skill of pipe making. I prefer we don't set any precedents that can be exploited down the road, i.e. offloading pipes that won't sell, and such. Not accusing anyone of anything, and it hasn't happened yet that I know of, just thinking ahead. Kinda my job to steer this crazy bus in the right direction. :)

I'm going to have to withdraw from this year's PITH. To make a long story short, I have moved back to the USA from China, and haven't had the time or space to make pipes.

Good luck everyone, and I look forward to seeing your completed pipes!

Hey guys and gals,

I am hoping to be able to get my pipe done in time. Do we have a specific date in mind for when we would like to do the exchange?

I haven't had a lot of time in the shop lately, as over the last month I changed jobs, planned a wedding, and got married. All of these things have limited my time in the shop. I am hoping to have a nice pipe done in time to participate, but may have to back out if I can't get it done in time.

We're aiming for the end of July.

Premal and others. Still working through attempts at a good oval shank. Learning a lot...but haven't completed one yet. I figured I would post this here. If I'm looking to use files as suggested, what kinds would you suggest? Pics helpful too. I've used a rough file/rasp to shape as well as a 100 grit emery board. Thanks, Tom Cobb
