One Year Anniversary

February marks my first full year offering pipes for sale, and my second making pipes. I'm having a great time, and just finished pipe number 48. I'm hoping to carve out more time for pipe making this next year and have a goal of making at least 50 pipes in 2008. Also new this year is participation in the A.S.P Pipe of the Year (POY). The shape for the POY this year is a Belge, which is a new shape for me.

In addition to working on the POY design and prototype, I'm also getting ready for the St. Louis pipe show (February 16th) . Last year's St. Louis show was my first ever pipe show, and I had a fantastic time. This year it will be great to return as an exhibitor. I only have 7 pipes ready so far, but hoping to add to that over the next couple of weeks.
