I clean the pipe thoroughly,opened the airway,i have done a rustic work and i changed the colour to black.I put a brushed aluminium band,i changed the tenon with another one at 6mm and applied a coat of shellac.

Great work, Sid! So you use a Dremel tool for rustication? I have no talent for such things and would completely destroy the pipe. :lol:
