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.
Erik, I actually like the matte "Danish" look of your carousel—and the pipes look amazing. It was smart to get a rack with slots for the stems, rather than holes. The holes don't always accommodate wider stems, although you can sometimes separate the stem from the stummel and reconnect the two after the stem is through the hole.

BTW, you better get busy filling those last two slots!

Nice score! Davidoff Flake Medallions is my favorite of that genre. You sure can't beat the price you got it for.

Just bought a Boxed pair of Cellini Bulldogs, one smooth the other blasted, used but look to be in good shape, lets hope they are, also negotiating on a Radice Rind Rodesian, will see how that goes
