Remember this?


Well, I did what I said I was going to do and oval the stem out. Turned out OK except that I got the shaft a little too thin and it cracked while I was working on it. Oh well, it is what it is as they say. Did a coat of black, sanded it off, then a coat of orange. Here's a couple pics.

Thanks Mozjo33. The iPhone sucks when it comes to taking photos. The color is actually deeper than what the pics show. I was a little leery about trying orange on black, but it came out nice. Too bad for the crack in the shaft. Still has a good vacuum though if you cover the tobacco chamber and draw on it.
