    Thanks for this, I'm going to try re staining some when I get more experience. Is the stain you use the leather stain as that is the one I can find?
    Also the pictures seem to have vanished from this thread.

    Thanks Duncan. The stain I use is an alcohol based leather dye. It is made by Feibings.

    Herb is going to reinsert the pics later today. You can also read about it on my blog http://rebornpipes.wordpress.com/201...orial-essay-2/

    I was hesitant to try soaking the bowls in alcohol, but your results speak for themselves. I had a couple of no name bowls and an LHS Barronette to serve as Guinea pigs. I am thrilled with how well the old finish, grime, tar and general unpleasantness seemed to melt away.

    I remember having the same feeling when I first was told about the alcohol bath. I took the old bowls out in fear and trepidation. Since then I use it all the time and have no problems to date.
