Lot of five pipes I won from PipeStud for a fair price are all exclusive pipes. Tinsky, Castillo, Radice, Charatan, Rutherford. But I have my work cut out for me. I've already begun bringing them back from the brink. All of them can be redeemed. Just gonna take time. All afternoon is my estimate.

Shape they were in when I got them. Oh, them stems ;-/

Image
I don't know what you paid for it but, all in all, that's a superb lot of pipes.
I'm happy with what I accomplished today with them. Had to top some of the stummels and scrub others. All I have to do tomorrow is polish the stems and wax the briar. Stems took some work. Most had shallow teeth marks/ chatter. One was badly oxidized.

I will arrange them, restored, in the same grouping as my original post and post the results

When J-B wrote that he was defrosting the chicken I thought of asking if that was a euphemism. Then Goose (unwittingly, I think) followed up and I almost fell out of my chair.

When my day begins like this, I know it's going to be great. Thanks for the good start fellas.

These are walnut stair treads and risers I built at work. One of the other guys provided the finish.

It's the unintentional humor that's the best. But sorry for your embarrassment, J-B. Forgive me. No harm intended.

Here is a Roermond Delta #113 I got off of eBay for $9.95. It looked like a turd but I knew I could polish this turd:

Image

I did a coarse salt/alcohol soak on the bowl, sanded off the finish and 3 stage buffed the hole pipe. Came out pretty good for under $10!

This is the place to post all your projects that don't deserve their own thread. Work, home, church, art, music, poems, hobbies - whatever. As long as it's cool, and you're working on it, this is the place to share it.

(But be forewarned - if you share a poem yer probably gonna get some crap.)
