Hello again everyone. Once again i turn to you for advice. I was making this pipe and managed to break the shank at the finish line. Now the grain on it is hardly visible on the pics but in person it looks quite good so i didnt wanna let it go to waste so i stuck a piece of straight grain cherry wood to it. I havent stained or polished it yet but i already like it. My question is whether you think a fix like this could hold up aganist time and continuous use.
