Nice one. I have a stick of cumberland I bought a few years ago. Before I decided I don't really care for cumberland all that much. I've been wondering what a cumberland stem with a black band would like like so I'll be interested to see this one shined up. Also, IMO the shape of your bowl is perfect. Perfect Billiard.

That is nice. Think it will be smooth?

The transition from the bowl to the shank looks great. I think that's where a lot of carvers go wrong.

A little progress tonight. Fred, I've only sanded the stem to 220 and the stummel less than that, but I buffed it real quick with tripoli so you could see what the black ebonite ring is looking like with the cumberland.

That really looks sharp. It's much more defined than I thought it'd be.

I hope you can keep it a smooth natural.

Slowly but surely. Calling it quits for the night. Lot of tweaks to make.

Take a look

My ring finger is longer than my index finger as well.

EDIT:
A Handsomer face and a longer peni are just 2 of the benefits of a longer ring finger.

Still need to bowl coat and stamp, but it's pretty much done. I'm not crazy about the color combination of the stummel and stem, but not bothered enough by it to sand it all down, restain, rebuff, etc.
