Thanks a million Brother. They look awesome. I'm sure glad I didn't try doing it myself without a buffer or just smoke 'em unfinished, which I almost did several times.
I'm impressed. Those 3 unfinished pipes were only $30 on amazon so I wasn't expecting much but they sure look beautiful now.
I've been loving my cobs but all of a sudden I'm super excited to get into the briar game.
The one you wanted just waxed has some filler in it. So it was a good choice to leave it natural. Dye tends to makes the filler really stand out to be noticed. Unless you paint it with dye and leave it.. But I like grain..
I was gonna ask if wanted any stems bent differently but they seem to go well with the bowls already. But if you do tell me now before I box em and ship em. If you decide later to redo the bends let me know I'll walk you through it.
