A JAG Billiard with Faux Ivory Mount

Post by joegoat » Sun Jul 23, 2017 5:27 pm

Life has been busy, but I've still found a few hours here and there to get out to the shop. I've determined to do better at wiping the lint off of these things before I do the pictures. Anyhow, this was my first go at a contrast stain. While nowhere near a Tom Eltang contrast stain, I think the final stain came out quite nice for having no clue what I was doing. I did opt for another polish after I took these pictures and that really finished it nice!

Hey now.
Revisiting. The images in this thread thus far has rekindled PAD. It never really goes away. It's only remisses for a few days at a time.

So ,,,,,,

Upgrading to from 'hey now' to:

Fetching.

We apologize for the lesser ranking prior. It was in no way to isolate you from society in any way, Just because 'hey now' means 'torches and pitchforks' in Canadian, that in no way impacts the level, as well as swiftness, of your upgrade. However, I am required by law to read the following:

When hasteling Canada for no real reason then, it is the responsibility of you as the parolee to recite the following.

Canada is not dumb nor stupid. It's geographic beauty far exceeds any bologna coming form me, the parolee.

Alright then.

Nice job, again! Contrast turned out pretty good ... at least in my books. :)

I'm happy to get the PAD rolling again! I'm sure Canada thanks you for your kind words.

Thank you! I need to work on getting the black stain in as deep as I can. I may have done all I can with leather dye though. I sanded to 400 grit, heated the wood with a heat gun, and applied a heavy coat of black leather dye and heated it again. I sanded with the 400 grit, very careful to evenly remove only the excess black so the grain was very clearly defined. I then stained with light brown leather dye and after sanding up to 2,000 grit applied a coat of shellac that is very thinned out with alchohol. Two rounds of buffing later I called it done.

Thank you for your kind words gentlemen! This was my first commissioned pipe. I had full artistic liberty and could make anything I wanted. That's the way to do it! The fellow who wanted it will be a first time pipe smoker and he loves it.
