I bought an estate and found out latter it had a small crack. I put a little wood glue in it and restained it. Not the prettiest thing but it is a dang good smoker. Dang long smoker too. Storient I would love to see a pic of your meer oom paul.
my fav shape is an Oom Paul sitter. Right now the closest thing I have to it is the Peterson System 305, which is very much like an Oom Paul, being a very bent calabash, it's featured in my avatar picture.
3 Oom Pauls here.
A Castello Sea Rock, a Savinelli Antique Shell, and a Cragmoor estate that I just refurbed this past weekend.
I love the shape. Feels very natural to me and I dig that classical look of the deep bend. I plan to add a few more in the futue.
Awesome guys...totally surprised me. I didn't expect so many of you to have one and that you use them. That's great.
@Storient...very nice. Would be terrific if it had a coloured stem and was a sitter. That would be a pipe to drool over.
