Charles offered a creative use of stems to convert this paneled horn into a beautiful churchwarden. Well done. Let’s see if some of you have also done the same…
I thought I’d squeeze another pipe onto the DadsPipes Store shelves in time for the Holiday buying season. This Stanwell is one of the last survivors of the Danish Lot of 30 or so estate pipes I purchased about a year and a half ago. It had been sitting in the refurb box for quite some time as I prioritized other projects ahead of what I figured would be an easy cleanup.
When I brought the pipe to the worktable, it was in decent overall shape. I was dirty, of course, and the stem and vulcanite shank extension were well oxidized, but the chamber had only a thin layer of cake and some debris to contend with. There was a bit of lava flowing from the chamber onto and over the crowned rim, but the stem was free of larger tooth dents, with only a little bit of chatter visible.
