    Making A Pipe Rack

    Nice work. Wish I had more mechanical aptitude, so I could put together something like this. Until then, I will pick up the occasional deal on the bay.

    My First Peterson

    Christmas in August for me! I decided to splurge and picked up a Peterson Christmas Pipe 2014. This is my first Peterson, and I could wait to try it. Thanks to smokeybear's recent review I picked up some Villiger After Dinner and had some the other night. Truly delightful. It is amazing how...

    Elba Pipes

    Nice looking pipes, sir. Especially after cleaning them up. Did some research online, turned up nothing for elba pipes. There is some info referring to a Lorenzo Elba, which is most likely the pipe maker, but it is very limited information.

    Re-staining a Rusticated Pipe

    Hey everyone, I decided to try my hand at restoring an estate pipe. Picked up a pipe for $6 on ebay that looked interesting, but the only downside is that it has a God-awful dark stain. The pipe is rusticated, so I was curious as to how difficult it will be to sand down to re-stain it and if...

    Any Gamers On Here?

    I have XBOX One and do some gaming on my laptop. For the console, I usually play mostly shooters, COD Ghosts and Titanfall. On the computer, I play more grand strategy (i.e. Crusader Kings 2, Europa Universalis 4) as well as adventure games like The Walking Dead.
