This year I started 4 and was able to finish them all (last year I started 5 and finished 2)

and an oval shanked billiard

As I did last year, my recipient gets his choice.

So the original agreement for the deadline was the end of this month. How does everyone feel about pushing it out to the close of business next Saturday, and I'll post the list on Sunday morning, August 6?


I'd be good with this.

I may not be able to ship immediately because I will be away, but delaying the shipping date is OK with me.

Sure. Will give me time to try a classic again.

Alright, so for whoever hasn't posted that they are done yet, I'll be reaching out to you via PM to confirm participation, and I'll be updating the list accordingly.

Sadly, I have to bow out at the last minute. Life got in the way. I look forward to seeing all the entries, and I hope everyone posts them here.

Guys, I'm going to bow out. I think I was probably overly ambitious at this stage. Having problems and time constraints completing the replacement stem for my piece...and it doesn't really fit the PITH criteria. I've learned so much in my several attempts at a classic oval shank. I'm grateful for the push trying the PITH has given me. There are some fantastic entries. So much to learn..and doing it with a smile on my face. Peace all. ImageImageImage

I'll be posting the list mid to late morning tomorrow. If you haven't posted that you're done or haven't responded to my PM, please do so.

And here it is!
The procedure now is that you will send your pipe to the person below you on the list and you will receive a pipe from the person above you, and it is yours to keep. Get in touch with each other and exchange mailing addresses and such. After receiving your pipe, take the time to examine it closely, smoke it a few times, and offer a thorough critique to the person who made it. If there's any issues, pm me and we'll get it figured out. If you are not on this list, it is because you dropped out, or I did not receive a response from you. If you are done, but not on the list, please contact me TODAY and I will work you into the list.

I have been in contact with both and my pipe has been mailed. Even though its recipient will be in Italy the 22nd, so much for ordering some ebonite. :lol:

I've been in contact with both, and will be shipping in the next few days, as soon as I lick this #@&+! head cold....

My pipe just went into the mail.

As far as the other side goes, I guess I'll have to wait for Steve to get back from his briar orgies with Mimmo.
