Estate Pipes I've Redone

Post by Goose55 » Sat Aug 25, 2018 10:43 am

Before and after pics. A Regents Bruyere. It had a glossy coating I had to remove w/ lacquer thinner and I buffed it with some micro sanding pads. And I redid the stem to a wet-look gloss jet black with lacquer thinner, micro pads, swirl mark remover and Obsidian Oil.

Nice!
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV

Thanks. It's great fun bringing briars back to close to what they were.

Thanks. I was especially very pleased with how the stem turned out. Better than new.

On this one, it didn't take much. Just had to sand down some rough chatter on the stem and clean, polish and obsidian oil it. Stummel had a bit of cake to trim back, a discolored rim and grime on the bowl exterior. Brightened up nicely with Halcyon wax
