Just For Himís Amateur Pipe Carving Contest!!
September 17th will be the start of Just For Him's first
amateur pipe carving contest. This contest is for amateurs only.
Professional pipe carvers are more than welcome to attend the demonstration
but please do not enter the contest. This is meant to be a fun introduction
to pipe making for those interested in trying their hand at it. If you're
not sure which category you fall under it is simply this: If you have been
paid for a pipe you've made you are considered a professional.
To enter the contest participants will need to purchase one of our Carve
Your Own pipe blocks on or after September 17th(these blocks are
pre-drilled and come with an unfinished stem), sign up for the contest and
have their picture taken. Contestants must use this block and stem for
their finished pipes. Contestants will have until November 12th to carve
their pipes. All pipes must be brought into the shop for judging on or
before noon on November 12th. The judging will be done by Just For Him
staff and some of our local professional pipe carvers. More information
will be available on September 17th.
Pipe maker Matt Roussell(one of the judges) will be giving a pipe making
demonstration at 3:00pm on September 17th. Matt will be giving tips on
carving and finishing pipes and will be available to answer questions.
