Entry G (below): Brian Cantley
"It is a Missouri Meerschaum I bought at my local shop, I cut out the standard change and bought a ear of corn shucked it and cut of the actual corn, then I dried the cob, whittled it as far as I could, coated it with plaster of Paris then sanded it then applied carnuba wax and attached it and whittled a mouth piece from a dowel."

Entry H (below): John Barrett   www.etsy.com/shop/rekamepip
John shared about his pipe: "The Cob was Panel shaped, smoothed and waxed. Fitted with a hand shaped black walnut shank I decided to just use a Missouri Meerschaum Danish Bit as i really like these for form and comfort (and hey this is going to be my pipe and I am smoking it) Final touches to the pipe included a special treatment Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey." 

Entry I (below): Jeremiah Sandahl
"I call this the "Blowcob" because I modified the bowl to be more or less a blowfish shape. I made a briar reverse calabash shank and a hand-cut vulcanite stem, which is permanently epoxied to the shank."

Entry J (below): Rod (aka: 978Good on Youtube)
Talk about a class act.  Rod has actually not sold any of his pipes, but because he's been posting videos of his pipe making exploits he voluntarily put himself into the Pro class to prevent any concerns from the competition.  You must watch the support video to see what Rod did to make his pipe come to life: http://youtu.be/YwiyZ_TRsBo
