Peterson’s Straight Grain 69 with busted stem

I have this Peterson’s Flame Grain 69 with the main problem being the stem. The bowl rim had some lava and dings, and one fill on the side. The top of the stem had a few tooth depressions but the bottom had a large chunk broken off.

After prepping the stem, I plugged the hole with a piece of cardboard wrapped with tape to prevent the glue from sticking to it. Then mixed up the black superglue with powdered charcoal and patched the holes.

While that was drying, I reamed and did the cotton ball/alcohol treatment, redid the fill and restained the pipe. I used black as the base, wiped and sanded down and applied medium brown dye. Then wiped down and hit the buffer to finish it up.
Back to the stem. Sanded with 220 and needle files to sharpen the bit end. Then 400 up to 3000 grit. Then hit the buffers. Here’s the finished pipe. Sorry for the lack of pics.
