As an old hand at wood working. All I can say is remember if it feels like your having to force the wood into where you want it to go. Your overlooking something. Step back take a few breaths shake off the frustration and approach it with a clear head. You can never put any thing into the wood only bring out what is already in there. Best of luck and remember relax and work "with" the wood.

My pleasure.  I thought you might. Even the best get frustrated from time to time. For me I have found the closer I am to being finished the more I rush in excitement and that is when I will mess things up. That is why I never finish a project until I have slept on the and can come at it fresh and calmly. This allowes me to go over it in my head and organize the steps I have left and recheck everything I have done up to that point. Best rule of thumb is always save you finish work for the first part of the day. Than your never rushed or tired or stressed from the day.

I did get a load of pecan wood from a pecan farmer friend of mine. I have never done a pipe out of pecan but it's really nice looking wood and hope it turns out
