    Ferndown No Star pipes

    Ferndown No Star pipes

    Just took in three unsmoked Ferndowns Barks that I'll be selling. All are quite large. None have stars designating size. Never seen a Ferndown Bark without stars. Can anyone edify me? Thanks, D.

    Les Wood "Star" pipe

    Thanks, guys for comments and photo uploading coaching. The photo is the correct pipe. I also found a comment on the pipephil site indicating that Les Wood sells to the European market, stamping pipes "L.Wood." Apparently the U.S. importer/distributor has the copyright on "Ferndown" and...

    Les Wood "Star" pipe

    emery board a stem?

    I'd also recommend against an old fashioned emery board. They're very coarse. Simple chatter should come out with 400 sandpaper followed by 600. Or, you can get some foam nail boards at Walgreens in various grits, some very fine. Don't use any abrasive unless you have a buffing wheel to...

    Received My Dave Neeb Commissioned Pipe Today

    Thanks guys for all the very kind comments. You can't imagine how good it makes me feel about myself as a craftsman and a pipe seller. I really appreciate it. I just finished two more pipes that I've been working on along with Shinkano's. You can see them here. Dave
