Don't trash it! But yes the main requirement is a lathe. I believe that was established back when they first started doing these challenges in the turning forum. I'm sure we'd all love to see what you made though. :)
haha oops! nobody said I was good at reading rules. :)

Not sure about the veneer but some of those thin strips at 1-8 thick and 3/4 wide would be nice.

Sorry for the delay on responding, I never got notification of your post so just now seeing it. If you still want some veneer I can put an envelope or box together for you, what length would you want the strips?

Challenge makes me think of a friend of my dad's when I was growing up. After a few drinks he would usually lite his pipe and say. "I don't smoke, I don't drink, I don't swear. G&# d+& it I left my pipe at the bar".

I think I'm going to stiple the front. Need to come up with something to cover up that inclusion that still shows up.

IMHO- if you want aesthetically cohesion and continuity, I would create a “dialogue” on the pattern
of the volcanite stem that reminds me of transition from Art Noveau to Art Deco. You bring the “shark” theme in, then you commit to narrating that with the other component parts to fit the story. Just saying and my 2 cents.

Had to get a new buffing wheel to wax my pipe. Kudos to the Classic Nib, aka Arizona Silhouette, For super fast shipping. Realized Friday that I needed a new one, ordered, and it was in my mailbox on Monday :good2:
