It should be part of the deal that the pipe maker must sign a contract, promising not to leave the forum after undertaking a CPS POY. Making one person happy is one thing, a dozen or so would have to be quite another.

These are some fine looking pipes!

Sorry for the late update. I've been busy the last few days finishing up everything.
All pipes are now finished, packed and ready to be shipped! :)

I received a strikingly similar pipe in the mail today. What a coincidence. I guess I need to set up some other photo hosting site other than Photo Bucket.

Hoping we can get acquainted this evening.
