Step 7: Nearly done

Picture of Nearly done
Put it all together and make little corrections.
The pipe isn't ready to be used yet. You have to seal and polish the wood still. However I still need to write an Instructable of how to seal and polish the wood. For now you have done a good job in making your pipe.
I think it would be good to mention is that while you recommend that people should use briar wood (or bruyere) the pipe you made is not made from briar wood. Also, briar wood is an incredibly hard wood and will take a lot of work to sand down to shape (which is why many freehand pipe makers use high quality files instead of sandpaper for the shaping).

Otherwise, good instructable, though if it was just about the price you could get a new decent pipe for pretty much the same price you'd pay for the briar wood and the equipment required :)
Do you have a reference or two where to purchase prefabricated stems?
