Just a few DG's I've worked on...

No 'before' refurb images on any of these 3, so they go here.  Suffice to say, each had their own set of issues.

A Westy prince with the wrong stem...but it'll be a smoker, so I'll only replace it if I come across the right stem.



A Crown Duke 36; this one's heading to Dean, by way of a trade.  Deano...hope you like the little stem bend...cuz it has it....  Wink





A Westy 85.  Yep, I put a little bend in the stem in this one too.  Just like it a bit better on this one...





The wire carving is very deep in parts of this one.  Wonderful work by the factory...

Nice carving on the 85, like some bend here too.

Nice looking pipes. That rustication on the 85 is killer. I'm not too sure on the stem bend though.  Wink

Bent or not, really nice ones

A little bend here and there has a tendency to take some of the kinks out of life! Nice work!

Great looking pipes Joe, I especially like the 36 and 85.

Nicely done Joe. That poker is a sweetheart.

a litle bend gives them a nice look and it always seemed easier to hold in the mouth with a slight bend

I think it helps with balance, like the canted bowl on a Cutty.

I agree, and I don't care WHAT Ed and Wayne say about the bend!  LOL

Hi Gents, I have always preferred bent, never really liked the look and feel of a straight pipe, although each to his or her own, but for myself I will always prefer a bent pipe. That's not to say I don't own a few straight pipes but I have added a bend to most of them. G'Day Gents.

Oh wow, very, vey nice work there!

just a little update.  The 36 is BEAUTIFUL, and smokes a treat.  The little bend is just right on the stem.

Thanks Joe!
