I am liking how this turned out. It's just under 7 inches long. The bowl is a 1 5/8's tall and 3/4 in wide (inside diameter). Its fairly light at 30 grams.

The grain is nice and while there are a few pits I did not want to rusticate it, the grain is too nice IMO. The pipe is a natural finish, no stain used. Just a hard carnuba wax, same with the bamboo.

Nice job and detail in blending the curves of the bamboo into the stem/pipe (stummel?) joint. Polished out well. Nice job!  cheers

Thanks guys, I spent a lot of time on this one, at least they are turning out better, now I just need to get faster at it.
