Announcement    Welcome to my new shop! Many of you may know me from my other shop, WolfysLeather.etsy.com, which has been on vacation mode for a while due to several reasons. In the interim, I have switched my focus from leather goods to pipes and woodcarvings.

I have been lovingly bringing old, worn pipes back to life for many years now. I have finally decided to make some of my restorations and services (coming soon) available here in my shop.

My son and I also make handmade pipe accessories such as tampers and pipe stands, which will also be added to the shop.

On rare occasion you may even see handmade - and I mean no-lathe, no power-anything handmade - pipes pop us in the shop. So favorite the shop and look in often for the newest offerings.

I am also offering some of my handmade wood carvings. I carve mostly from kiln dried basswood and poplar; each item will list the wood it’s carved from.

About PapawsPipes

Sales 20
On Etsy since 2016

A passion for bringing old things new life to be handed down to the next generation.

My general routine is to ream the bowl, clean it with a salt and alcohol soak, clean the shank and stem with alcohol, remove oxidation, fill/repair tooth marks/dents, polish and wax the entire pipe. Sometimes the process will vary a bit (maybe add a bowl coating or make other repairs as needed for the specific pipe, for instance) but the end product is a nicely restored pipe in any case.

Pipes are listed in different categories depending on if they have been restored/refurbished or not. Feel free to ask any questions you have about what has or hasn't been done to a pipe you're interested in.

Woodcarvings are all done by hand with no power equipment. The carvings are, in general, sanded very little; I like the knife and tool marks to remain, showing the true handmade nature of each item.
