Here it is. This is how it looks like. Will be delivered on Friday once it has been blasted.
What do you think?

Well, these are the pics of the finished pipe that Ezequiel sent me.

I'm very happy with the end result.

Will have the pipe later today and will post some good pics of my own on a separate post.
What do you think?
Cheers,
J

Looks like a Herreria to me! The 2nd pipe of his that I bought was also an unfinished natural, the first such that I've bought. It's grunged up nicely. In the image of the chamber, it looks like the airway might be a little low where it meets the chamber, but don't worry about that. The bent that I bought had a similar arrangement and it smokes beautifully. I just take a little extra care with the cleaning. Congrats!

Thank you for your comments guys! I'm very happy with it. It looks a lot nicer than these pics. Will upload some of my own later today.
@Gloucesterman, it is finished! Or to be precise, unfinished. The pipe will colour with use in a similar way than a Meer. It is not stained or waxed. Just natural wood that will colour with use.
@Sablebrush, when I met him today Ezequiel told me thta he is doing the low air ways deliberately, as he belives it contibutes to a good smoke. We'll see...

Would you please upload some pics of how your natural pipe looks now?
Cheers,
J

I would be very tempted to treat an unfinished pipe with Odie's Oil. Here's a poor example. Odie's really gives a nicer look than this pic shows.
