Agreed. From pictures, I thought I'd like it, but after I made it....not so sure anymore. But, if I try to sell them (if I ever get to that point), and people like them, I'll make them.
One interesting thing though...the tube is loooong. When I made my first attempt to drill the hole in the blank, I ran out of bit. I had to bring my table up (using a drill press), and also leave more of the shank of the drill bit exposed to make it all the way through.
