Well, I finished my first pipe in about two months, after I went through this huge ordeal with pipe stamps.

All I can say is, guys, you need to have at least two, count them, 2 pipe stamps, on hand, at all times. Because, if you drop your one-and-only pipe stamp on the concrete and chip a few letters, you are going to go nuts scurrying around to have a replacement made and then having to wait for it.

And then, if UPS loses your stamp, forcing you to do it all again ... well, just don't be like me, get yourself an emergency backup stamp!

Now! Do it now! Don't even look at the pipe below, order yourself a backup stamp! Do it now!

:roll:

:lol:

Looks like it would take a lot of time putting all those dimples on!

Unique finish! Nice job. I really like the shape.

Yeah, you ain't kidding. It took me, like, three hours with a little rotary tool. :lol:

I'm very serious.. the horn shape is one of my least favorite for some weird aesthetic reason. This one, I'd walk out of a shop with if I had the cash handy, no questions asked. Good stuff.
