I guess due to my immense frustration from packing up all day to head back to PNG soon, I did a piss poor job on the finish sanding of this pipe, and I let a sliver of stain get on the bamboo (ugh!) Also, this one really should have been sandblasted due to sand pits, but our air compressor is non working at the moment. Other than that, though, I'm pretty excited with this one. I'll take some better pics tomorrow, after the bowl coat and stamp, but here she is mostly finished up.
