Well after probably 40 hours of work my pipe is finally finished. I drilled the block, shaped the pipe, stained and did all of the finshing. Drilled the stem block, shaped the stem, and got it all polished up. And I am really pleased with it. I would say that it is the best work I've done so far. I'm not going to post pics or give any details about it other than that till after the show, but I'm excited. The real quandary is whether or not to offer it for sale at the show, if it doesn't win :wink:!

Thanks guys, I've already had my wife take lots of pics of it, and I will post them up first thing after the show. It was fun to make and expanded my boundaries. Can't wait to start the next one.

foggymountain, I'm sorry to hear about your unfortunate problem. I suggest you take up the practice of smoking a heavy Latakia inside the house, and see if that helps.
