What sorta bowl finish you wanna be poinken?

Pictures will be posted below. Options will be similar, but not identical to those pictured in photos.

As for the stem, you have two options:

Basic MM stem (shipped at cost listed in whichever poll option wins)

Forever Stem Upgrade (standard length, probably blue +$25)

Color of bowl works with the blue stem.

Powder light blues, lighter grey bowl.

Royal blue? I'll hunt you down and you will disappear. And that will be that.

Deeper blues, darker cob color, charcoal highlighted with indigo.

What if the said poinker obtained his own forever stem and provided you with color hints, ideas?

Like for mine. I'm gonna go with a Cumberland like stem. Unless of course i see another that strikes my fancy between now and then. I'll get it myself. You do up the stemmel. Might make life easier? Or. Or. It's a way bad idea. Not sure.

Ya’ll crack me up, the thought behind ordering the forever stems was a. to accomplish a little uniformity and b. to save on shipping by ordering them all at once.

For this reason I will offer the forever stem (probably the blue to match the sticker) or the traditional black stem.

If I do dye the pipe, this being my first time it will probably be brown, maybe next year with a bit more practice under my belt we’ll try something a little more adventurous.

This particular poll wasn’t as telling, the ultimate options for bowl finish are yet to be seen, I am working on figuring out an easy setup that will allow me to apply carnuba wax, after that we should be in business. We are also in the middle of trying to buy a house so results mah be a bit delayed, but we will get it done!

I have the buffing wheel drill bits, but I personally found the drill ineffective on carnauba wax, it’s too dern hard.

Just to update, I’m in the process of buying a house, once that’s done I’ll try and get a workbench and buffing wheel set up post haste so that I can work on these hopefully over the summer.
