Ha ha ha, too funny! I can picture it now, you in your basement cussing up a storm, buffing away at a block of steel.
Something I was thinking as well is we have an awesome Renaissance fair here in Minneapolis and there are two or three glass blowers there. Might be worth while to ask if they can make something by hand and specifications for the traditional stem size. Would be pretty bad ass.
