Zounds, this pipe-describing quadruped has died and gone to birdseye heaven (which come to think of it would actually terrify the hell out of me, if it was a literal interpretation - shades of those alien and frightening Old Testament descriptions of angels come to mind). Tom coaxed out some amazing birdseye and crossgrain on this lovely, trim sitter, all coaxed into breathtaking relief by his one-of-a-kind Golden Contrast stain. I can't imagine this pipe will hang out for any length of time.--R. 'Bear' Graves
