Mark Domingues:

I learned pipe restoration out of necessity, buying estate pipes on eBay to build up my collection. For some unexplained reason, I gravitated to the classic shapes of the famed Irish maker Peterson. Although I have other makers in my collection, Peterson's makes up the bulk. i was lucky enough to find Steve Laug's blog "Reborn Pipes" and his massive library of restoration work. I learned enough to restore my own pipes and shared my work on the pipe forums. This evolved into people sending me their pipes in need of repair. My dedication to restoration perfection and putting customer service as my top priority has grown my business tenfold.

I was born in South Louisiana and spent the first 30 years of my life there. I married my soul-mate Robin, had 2 wonderful kids and moved to Houston, Texas where we have been for almost 30 years. I've been involved in animal rescue since we moved to Houston. I currently volunteer with Texas Great Pyrenees Rescue, helping rehome these magnificent working dogs into a loving family environment.

With three super grandkids, my very busy life is filled with love and laughter. Im a very happy man!
