ok, I am sure many of us have numerous resolutions planned for 2013 that don't involve pipes or tobacco, but since this is a website devoted to pipes and tobacco I thought I would dwell on that subject. What are the top one or two things you would like to accomplish in the hobby this year? A particular pipe or pipes you want to get? A tobacco you want to try?

Personally, I would like to add 50 lbs of tobacco to my cellar stash and also want to have a pipe or two commissioned from one or two of my favourite artisan pipe makers. More on this latter objective soon, as I am currently working with our own Mr. Brian Growley on a project.

Hmm, I don't have my sights set on cellaring like many of you, for me I want to continue expanding my experience of different tobaccos, possibly add a pipe or two over the year, and make more of an effort to have a bowl regularly - the winter weather in the area I've moved to is kicking my ass, and as an outdoor smoker I've let it defeat me too often. Today I was out in a blowing sea mist that drenched me through three layers in about 10 mins... but I still managed to finish my bowl. Very Happy So I'm making progress on that score.

I would like to make at least 52 pipes, to purchase a lathe, and to purchase a pipe from my friend Daniel at ND pipes, and one from Christian at Tarock briar.

I would like to have enough tobacco to smoke this year, I honestly don't see how I can make a cellar and still progress with my tooling needs for pipe making.

I would like to have 100 lbs in the cellar. That represents purchases of 58 pounds plus replacing what I smoke. so around 65 or 66 pounds for next year.

I have plenty of pipes but I would like to add a few more Laughing

I just want to finish the pipe cabinet I started about 4 years ago. I have the drawers made for the pipes and storage, the oak for the carcass has cured and is ready to plane, cut, and finish. All I need is a couple pieces of white marble cut for the top and bottom,,,and some ambition.

Duh, they practice heavy drinking. How else shall they temper their livers and gain confidence with a guitar? Razz It's great fun.

My resolution is to kick the cigarettes to the curb while sampling pipe tobacco blends to find out what I want to keep on hand.

I would like to add a couple of Bulldogs to my collection, finish the pipe rack I started a week ago, and as Kyle put it so eloquently, "smoke in blissful, delicious peace as much as I am able" too! Very Happy

Well said Kyle, well said.

My primary resolution is to stop buying average pipes, and instead focus on purchasing 3 or 4 outstanding pipes this year. Either something vintage and collectable, like Charatan, Barling, or Sasieni, or something high end artesian like a Roush, S. Bang, Jim Cooke, Rad Davis, Lasse Skovgaard, or a Bill Ashton Taylor.

Also, want to focus more on cellaring some Latakia bulk blends, as well as some Virginia and Oriental tins.

"Try" and buy only four or five pipes total for the year and "thin" the herd a little.

Both may prove tough to do but so far I am actually doing it!! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes affraid affraid

Fewer cigs., more and better pipes, settle in to about 6-8 blends that I can cellar alot of, instead of trying alot and cellaring a little.
