    Usually they are placed into the inventory of your main character. If that is not happening, you might want to look in everyone's inventory to see if they show up elsewhere. There can be issues if the inventory is full, as well, in which case something gets dropped.

    I believe that both the character that talks to the person assembling the item, the Bhaalspawn, and (not or) the person whose portrait is in the #1 position in the party all need to have an open slot in their inventory backpack or it might glitch and not give you the resulting product.
    It might be only one of them, but don't be overloaded. Install the stacking mod from the tweaks pack, the bottomless bags of holding, and the ammo belts mod if it helps. I always try to keep one free slot for this reason.
    I also make sure to buy every ammo belt, potion kit, scroll case, and gem bag I can find.

    I am wondering what mods you have installed and am assuming you are patched to whatever was current. This does not sound like any vanilla game issue I have ever experienced.

    So you are running BG2 with an uninstalled TOB? Is it patched?

    Sounds like the trouble I had with installing X-Com 2012 from Steam. It was a Christmas present so it's not like I had a choice about getting the Steam DVD.
    As Cromwell, I do recall not being able to find the completed item if I had my inventories were full. I've taken to making sure to sell extra junk before heading to the Smithy, or at the very least finding a nearby container and dropping a few things like special ammunition for missile weapon that won't fit in the quiver in there temporarily so everyone has an open slot, although I think the issue only happened if the Bhaalspawn/Charname, the person talking to Cromwell, or the person in the #1 (topmost) character position had their inventory full.
    Only the "backpack" area mattered on the inventory screen, and you needed a free slot.

    --

    Can you tell us what version you have? From that we could discern if it was fully patched. If it isn't, try installing the official patches, it's really necessary, and either Baldurdash or G3 Fixpack (successor to Baldurdash) is strongly recommended.
    The mods I mentioned earlier help with inventory management.

    Assuming you're talking about the rift device (rod) and the mask of king strohm, both should assemble and the completed item put in the inventory of the player character.
    case in point in this lets play at around 20 seconds in :


    in your case do you get the quest update as usual on picking up the final part of the item collection ? does the log show the message "The Party Has Gained An Item" ?
    If you have no mods currently installed I can only assume that this is a hold-over bug in the original BG2, and only the right patch/fixpack will help you out.
    It's always best to run with the latest available patches and fixes for a game, and in case of the base bg2 patches, save games *should* stay functional, though once installed, the only way to go back to an unpatched version is to reinstall BG2. If you're really that worried, back up your save game files before running any patches and the like.
    You can grab the official patch to the game right here on sorcerers' : https://sorcerers.net/Games/BG2/index_misc.php

    In general, you pretty much want to patch any game like this with the last patch available because it fixes a host of bugs and issues like the ones you are currently experiencing. If you don't patch it, you can expect to continue to have bugs.

    As xosmi wrote above:

    As far as which one to use, given that you said you do not have TOB on this install, you would pick the applicable patch from the top entry. I don't know where you are to know which one you should pick, but it should be pretty obvious.

    Installing it is just following the directions.

    Not sure. I did it about five or more years ago on my previous machine but when that one died, I decided it wasn't worth breaking out the discs again to try to figure out what I did, and I bit the bullet and bought the EE versions. They play better with modern computers, come pre-patched and are basically more optimal.
