I picked up this abused pipe a few weeks ago.It's bowl has 2 cracks visible outside and a nasty mass of cracks inside the bowl....
I stripped clean, drilled a couple holes to end the spread of the worst cracks, sanded out the portions of briar that was more like burned cork than briar and have now patched with a combination of JB Weld at the worst spots and CA on the cracks on the lip and outside.
Now it has a new coat of stain.... I think after a few careful inner bowl coatings and time....and so much sanding and polishing it's best I not dwell on it before I chicken out... this poor old pipe may just live again.
