all dressed up with no place to go
Topic: 703TM -NFS

Although finshed, this pipe will become mine because it is unacceptable for sale. My third (but not final attempt) at a dress black pipe, although "ok" is not great. I will enjoy this pipe greatly, but could not sell it to you. I will try again at an all black, smooth pipe, but I gotta say, it aint easy.

Time to watch the Patriots play the colts on their march to the Superbowl!

What Goes under a black dress?
Topic: 703TM -NFS

Not a black slip, an undercoat. This is one option I was told to try in order to achieve a nice black dress finish on a smooth pipe; a black under coat. This is it; can't tell you what it is because it is actually someone elses trade secret told to me in confidence.

This pipe, dubbed "the tophat," will be classy with its shiny black finish, black carbonised bowl (inside), and black lucite stem from pipemakers.org

More important things in life
Topic: 703TM -NFS

There are obviously more important things in life than pipes, jobs, or money. Of course. Take a minute to call a friend who has slipped away, or if your estranged from your family, for God's sake don't be. . .

What remains to be done on this pipe:

  1. Fix registration of stem to shank
  2. sand
  3. stain
  4. polish
  5. Sell!

The Cutaways
Topic: 703TM -NFS

Still a little miffed in regards to staining pipes (that haven't been rusticated) black. 702 didn't come out as expected. I expected it black. I ran it by the guys in the pipemakers forum @ christian pipesmokers and learned that it can be a problem for everyone and that it isn't easy. Anyway i got a few more tricks up my sleeve, and am pleased with the way 703 is progressing. And I am still in search of my briar which is sort of lost in Canada since the 4th, thats 11 days! Anyway, it'll get here. Here is where 703 is at:
