I like Bob's suggestion. Our maybe a dark red and rusticated?

I still say blast it! Or, send it to me and I'll blast it!

While I'm being helpful here's a quick tip to avoid filing your stems too thin: don't take off so much material.

You're welcome.

I think it needs a contrast stain.
I think a contrasting would make it look super blotchy. It has one spot with a lot of grain and then other places that are almost completely bald.
Yeah, I see where you're coming from. The black finish would be sharp if it had something lighter to break up the black between the stem and stumel.

Dibs! Seriously - let me know when this is done and I'll see if the budget will allow it.

Thanks, bud. I figured I'd get back to it quickly while the inspiration is fresh.

RevThom, I'll give you first go at it...assuming I don't mess it up.

So much about this pipe that I'm not happy with. However, with so little spare time I haven't made anything in a long time and just feel like I need to wrap something up so hopefully it will spur me on to make some more. I still need to bowl coat this one and stamp it, but other than that I just have to call it done and move on.

I just wept. And maybe tinkled a bit.

It's beautiful.

I’m thinking about buffing the stain off and restaining a different color as I don’t think it goes well with the salmon stem. Thoughts?
