Got a stem well in to the works.  Not a perfect fit yet but put a little bit of a shine on and a bend.  Got as much gunk off the pipe as I could.  Almost there....

Before (the pipe on the right)...



After....

Coming along very nicely, not an easy job by any means adding a stem to an existing pipe, takes more thought than one might suspect doesn't it, you're doing a grand job Buddy, bravo. cheers cheers cheers

Wow, cleaning a plateau top is not easy, great job! Adding a stem to an existing pipe is also a tricky task (and not one I've tried yet). Excellent job, what a handsome stem. Was that carved from a rod or a pre-made stem. What a great color!

Poured the resin blank myself. Sanded/filed the square blank to its present shape.
