don't make the stoo-pit rodmaker's mistake

like I did
'cept it wasn't on a rod
I'm building a putter shaft and cork grip for my brother
after hand fucking shaping the grip 
because the stoo-pit big ferrule wouldn't pass through my lathe
I couldn't chuck it up

so I shaped by hand w/ a rasp and file
after about a hundred hours I finally got it to where I wanted
and thought....

coat it in glue and roll it in the cork dust

don't do that

I spent more time sanding that shit off the handle 
than it took me to cork shape and sand the damn thing

it's finally fine
though I learned a lesson

don't leave well enough alone
and those little dings and grooves in yer grip?

they ain't about shit
