I got this old meerschaum bowl in a lot a few months ago now I guess. It's been a work in progress but I fina;;y have it finished.

I posted more photos and a complete write up on Reborn Pipes if you are interested.

Wow Greg, that's a beauty! I only have a couple of Meerschaum pipes, and have never been drawn to them, as I like the looks of briar better. But the coloring on that is great! Nice job, keep up the good work.

What a great story Greg! I don't know how I missed this post from two weeks ago, but it is terrific.

Your gifts in pipe restoration are rivaled only by your writing. Beautiful job on a great looking pipe. :clap:

I look forward to reading your blog on reborn pipes. That pipe pictured above is an absolute stunner, your truly gifted. I'm actually envious.

Thank you gents for the kind words about both my work and word-smithing. The old meer did, indeed, come out rather well IMHO. I just love seeing these old pipes reborn to new life again.

wow; i wish i knew all i need to know..now. i have to learn so i can fix my first and only meer. On yours, does the stem tenon just push right into the meerschaum shank? is there any sort of teflon piece or something in there to mate up with the stem? i was unclear to me as i've only skimmed your article....she's a bute btw
