Is there a way to make a crooked base not crooked? I got a Sahara Smoke base and the top of the base is not level and makes the stem lean a lot. How can you make it level?

Well could you sand it? Or would that completely ruin the base? Haha cuz I'm smoking out of The Leaning Tower of Pisa right now and it's bothering the fuck out of me...

get some electrical tape and wrap it around where you put the grommet where the stem goes in the vase. Try to even it out like that. All mine have this done to them and they all fit nice and snug, are level, and you cant see the tape.

This. Electrical tape should help fix this.

Yes sir. It's mainly noticeable when there's no water in the base but the base is indeed slanted at the top. I like the electrical tape idea and will do that.
