I actually purchased this carousel on craigslist a couple weeks ago, but it was pretty rough. Just finished sanding and refinishing. Although it came out nice, I do regret using a stain with poly sealer built it, because it hides a lot of the grain and gives it a plastic look. If I was to do it again, I would just apply Howard’s Feed and Wax to the bare wood. I’m definitely not going to do it over because all the detail sanding of the pockets and irregular surfaces was painstaking. Also had to open up the top cut outs as they were too narrow for some of my pipes.

@Scap

Yep, just got outbid from 11.00 and now it’s 13.00 to play. This is why I hate this site. Really promotes people over paying for the sake of “winning”

For every item they sell at cost there's probably a dozen that go at or above MSRP just because someone gets the endorphin rush from "winning". If only they knew they were losing....lol.

Agreed, Iíve picked up a few tins to try with bids well below $10 mark. The key is finding something that is not in demand at the time

Just to be clear, that is not the reserve. It's just what the next bid level is currently sitting at. The auction has more than 2 days to go and if there are more than just the 3 current bidders lurking, than it's going to go up. I'm actually semi-interested in trying plum pudding, but with my relationship with Latakia, I have no interest in making room for 4 ounces.

I do hope one of you guys get a great deal on it, if your looking.

Lol no, i mean its the plum pudding reserve not the price reserve, there are 2 types of plum pudding, the regular and the special reserve, the ones i looked at were the special reserve and had 13 mins to go but that was a while ago, like 45 mins

I'm trying to stay away from devil auctions because I snipe ridiculous cheap deals in the last 20 seconds, and do it too many times before shipping day. So I ordered a few decent tobaccos a few guys have been letting me try at the lounge. We'll see when they get here. I also ordered 2 cheap pipes on another site earlier, a Molina shorty 122 and a Brog 316 Assessor mahogany, so we'll see when they get here too.
I've only spent $200 or so on cigars so far this year, so I feel I can get some more pipe stuff finally, but still be a cheap @$$ like I am known to be, lol.
