Can't Leave

Doesn't even register compared with the skills I see on these threads but thought I'd share anyway...I had a cheap Morelli pipe for a couple of years and it was supposed to be 'finished' with a "polished black bowl"

Turns out it was basically a gloss paint and no surprise that through use and humidity that the paint started to show some blistering, so rather than let the paint gradually flake off over several months (& knowing full well that it would've been originally painted due to a pretty poor grain) I nonetheless decided to sand it back and re-finish it with several coats of beeswax

Using a Stock image of the 'before' with my amateur 'rescue'. I'm pretty pleased with it (flaws an' all) and of course it still smokes well

Pretty nice grain underneath. I also have a couple of Morellis, and while inexpensive, they smoke extremely well. Good Work!
