had a thermofilter estate pipe that i got out of a lot. shellac and long stem with a filter tenon. paid $20 and got six pipes and a stand a while ago with the purpose of refinishing the pipes. had a nice peterson in it so i went for it. this pipe i pulled out as an experiment in rustication. i wanted to try a new method and wouldn't be sad if the pipe turned out to be worthless afterwords.

here is what it looked like before. this isn't my picture, but it's the same shape and finish as when i started


here is after rustication/staining






turned out pretty nice, so i had the local pipe repair guy restem it for me. i don't have a tenon cutter so it was easier going to him, plus the guy isn't working right now so i try and give him some business when i can.




so now i have a sweet pocket pipe!

What process did you use to generate that texture? I've been thinking of doing something similar to a cheap garage sale ting that's seen better days.

Would you please share the stains and finish used?

I used a Phillips head screw driver that I cut a slit in to give it four points, and the stain is the red stain from pimo, and a little black stain from pimo. I them melted some carnauba wax on it with a heat gun and blotted off the excess.
