    Piece of cake

    Restoring pipes is a piece of cake if you have accomplished help.
    Pius the Cat is convinced that restoring a pipe is far easier if he lies down on it before I get to it.

    The pipe I was working on was underneath him.

    Some great looking pipes there. I don't think we've seen numbers 6 and 8 down. Is number 7 down shape 6?

    In fact, they have turned it into an art form.

    Thanks and yes it's shape 6 alright. From the top down they are: Shape 90, shape 30, shape 34, shape 96 (The Potato Sack), shape 77, shape Old Shape (135), shape 6, shape 190 and shape 101. (To the left, it's shape Meat Loaf).

    Here are Tom Eltang's Old Shape and his shape 190 in a walnut stain. In fact, Old Shape is the first and so far the only pipe I've tried to restain.

    Count me envious, it's another cool old Stanwell shape rarely seen in the "estate" market.

    Really..? It's from 1951 but still. That'll mean that one has to get the 50th Jubilee set in order to get it.

    I buy all my pipes second-hand and most of them from a good friend who restores pipes as a hobby and his prices are low.
    If you're interested, I can talk to him and ask him to keep a look-out for nr. 6. In fact I know three people, one of whom is a Stanwell man, but his prices are not particularly low.
    I'd say that the chances are good for getting you a nr. 6, should you so wish. Have you tried William at www.estatebriarpipes.dk..?

    I think the problem was the towel. Cats love to be on something--a platform, or cushion, or really anything that defines the space. My snowshoe Casper will curl up on a piece of paper on the floor just to be ON something.
