    He restored this Crown Duke Grabow and replaced the stem. Looks better than before. I wish I would have taken before photos.

    This is a kaywoodie that he rusticated. I love this pipe!

    This is a Carey magic inch. I think he did an amazing job rusticating it for me! My wife likes the footprint.

    These pictures don't do justice to these pipes. I'm not a good photographer, but he did awesome! Thanks Coastie!

    Coastie's rustication has evolved within the past year. He's really gotten it down! Beautiful work!

    I'm impressed with his rustication skills. I will definitely be having him do all my rustication work.

    One of my first rustifications was on a bulldog that belonged to ArmedOctopus. He was a gentleman and said it came out great. I think he was just being nice. That pipe gave me nightmares for a long time.

    Coastie, funny you should mention that. I sat down last night with all my pipes and determined which ones I wanted to consider selling on ebay. I picked yours up, inspected it, and put it back in my "keepers" box. The ones you see in that other thread are the ones I want to let go of.

    I'm proud of the bulldog you rusticated for me. No, it isnt as good as your most recent work, but I like it just the same. Plus, there's just something about knowing a friend you've never met worked on it for you. It will forever remain in my keepers box. ;)

    Very nice pipes! Coastie has developed a great technique and I have enjoyed both of the pipes that he rusticated for me.

    Before the Carey pipe was just a cheap ol pipe I got off ebay. But now it's a pipe I will never get rid of. It definitely holds a lot more meaning to me now. Thanks again Coastie!

    Send a smooth my way and I will do it up for you. The state idea sounds pretty cool and would be fun to do.

    This project should be fun. I know that you want Georgia on yours, no problem. I keep picturing a big pot shape with Texas on one side and the Lone Star on the other. Any Texans want that done send me a PM.

    Sweet...enjoy the "new" pipes! Something special about adding that personal touch. Can make all the difference.

    Great job, Coastie! :appl:
