So, in 2019 I will still be smoking this Yello-Bole Pug Pipe which I purchased in 1969. It's a great pocket pipe and a good smoking pipe for  20 to 25 minutes of pleasure. Originally the pipe had 2 fills and over the years the briar started to look a bit "BLAH "! Being that it's almost a half century old I decided to do a complete change.....

Sanded the briar smooth and used black leather dye for the stain. After a few hours of drying time I did two separate coats of an epoxy resin that's capable of handling high temperatures. I achieved the glass like finish with a heat gun. No bubbles or brush marks. Also, unlike the Peterson pipes with a similar look that bubble after a few uses due to the lacquer that was used, the epoxy resin will not bubble, chip or fade.

On all of my pipes I use the rubber bit, I have a habit of clenching hard and I've destroyed a few stems due to a sharp tooth. No chatter on any of my stems now. Took some time for me to get use too.

Later today and tomorrow it will be smoked while waiting to be tortured by my doctors 5)

Below are two pictures, sorry if they are a bit blurry. Taken with my iPad, not my camera. But you can get the idea....






KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Cute Pug! If the doctor asks you if 'It's safe', get out of the chair!

Thank you all, really appreciate your comments. Smoked this Pug earlier today and I must say... still smokes excellent and looks great. This Dr. had nothing to say about my pipe smoking habit...he's a cigarette smoker 5) 5)
