Hello guys, after only 1111111 attempts :mrgreen: on making a straight grain billiard with grain orientation to the top, I'm close on achieving it.
Although natural finish is not a problem a possible DR-like finish will be great.

So any ideas on suggested under and over stain?

If the grain is clean enough, I would never think of putting any stain on it ;)
So I'm not sure what stain to use if you want to come close to the Dunhill... Promote it to a Root Briar! ;)

P.S.
That's a sweet pipe.

Now that is a cool pipe!


You might try a medium or light brown sanded back. That should be just enough to highlight the grain I'd think. I'd experiment on some scraps first.

Eventually I got to finish the pipe without staining.
