One might say that you've taken a Sow's Ear and turned it into a Silk Purse. Great job!!

Nice score and good work on it. Yes, paint is for walls, not wood. Painted wood is hiding something, on pipes that's usually lack of grain and or excessive flaws. I strip that and usually rusticate them out to match how bad the flaws are. If you want to fill them in try using Briar dust/shavings and superglue, you can stain the dust to match beforehand.

Thanks guys, it was a labor of love. I'm going to put a coating in the bowl and once it's cured I'm planning on lighting her up, hopefully sometime this week.:D

Thank you Sir! Yeah, I was prepared to to find flaws when I stripped the paint off but man! :shock: I actually thought about rusticating since it probably would've been easier to just add more jaggedness and holes to what was already there but my original vision for this pipe was smooth and sleek and I got determined to make it so. :D

Thanks! I'm sure the pipe feels better now that all that white crud is off of him and he can show off his pretty wood grain! :D
