Hi all.
Decided today was a good day to give my meer a fresh coat o wax. It is an Altinok that I have had since '05.
I set a pot of beeswax to melt in the oven set at 200 degree's.

The before pic's




I let it soak in the wax in the oven for about 15 min.





Pulled the pipe, wiped it down with a clean paper towel. I figured - why not do it again for another 15 min soak.




Fresh out of the bath tub.




All back together.


Now just to let it cool down for a while and fire up a bowl.

Thanks guys.
t-bear - the coloration is already starting to darken again. Especially along the back of the bowl and into the bowl/shank transition. That was an area that interestingly enough would have color deepen when you were smoking and that area got warm. As it cooled, the color would fade. That is what inspired the new coat of wax.

I will post a couple comparison shots in a couple days. It should be interesting as this is my go to pipe at home and usually will see 2 - 6 bowls on any given day.
