Hello again! I had the opportunity to fix up this beautiful Peterson’s Dublin 3 for a friend. Check out the “Before” and “After” pics and let me know what you think!
To remove the oxidation on the stem I wet-sanded the stem with 500 grit, 1000 grit, and 1200 grit. The tenon was a little too loose in the shank so I used a heat gun to to heat it up and adjust it. The inside of the stem was cleaned with high proof vodka and pipe cleaners. To finish the stem I buffed it with red tripoli and carnauba wax.
The bowl received a light reaming to remove the carbon build-up. The bowl did not have any burn-out spots so I didn’t need to do a bowl coating. The shank and bowl were both cleaned/sanitized with high proof vodka and q-tips. The top of the bowl had to be topped because of scorching. I sanded the top of the bowl with 500 grit, 1000 grit, and 1200 grit. The top was then re-stained to match the rest of the bowl finish. The outside of the bowl was finished with a buffing of red tripoli and a buffing of carnauba.
Thanks for looking!
