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.
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
