Hi guys. I finished this last night. I was buffing it this morning and decided to throw it on the floor a few times....Dang that buffer Evil or Very Mad

I am going to resand and refinish it to get the dings out. Critiques welcome.

Great work. I kind of like the small marks and chips unfilled (or at least they look that way).

There are actually quite a few flaws in the wood on one side, you can see them in the last picture. I didn't do anything to them at all. I did manage to put a few dings in it that I plan to smooth out.

I can see the flaws in the wood, but not the dings,but then I don't see that well. Flaws in the briar just don't bother me unless they are quite large. Mother Nature put them there so I don't go out of my way to hide them. I prefer a smooth pipe,even if it has flaws. Nice work!

Very nice work! I much prefer the more honest look of not using filler. Some see flaws I say it's character. Keep up the great work.

Great execution, fabulous shape and smooth lines. Fine polish. You're gonna need to find some briar that doesn't have as many pits to show off your work, though--or start experimenting on your own rustication to artfully dodge the flaws in the wood. That's the problem with getting better! Smile
