Repairing a Cracked Bowl

I believe I mentioned, a couple of weeks ago, that I acquired my first Peterson Pipe off of EBay for $14.95. It does however have a cracked bowl (see image). But, I love it the same!

I’ve been doing some research online about how to fill cracks and pits in pipe bowls, and, several folks recommend a DAP filler product called “Plastic Wood”. So, I plan on heading down to the hardware store and picking some up and then filling the cracks, sanding it gently, then staining it to see if I can get it to match pretty closely. They’ll probably be a little discoloration as the filler will probably not accept the stain in the same manner as the briar does. I’ll keep you posted on how it works out.

If someone knows of a better way, just let me know.
