been gone for a while. had some life issues to sort out. career change, blah blah blah. time to stop neglecting the fine brothers and sisters of the briar.

i got a pipe rack! actually two but i'm only keeping one. a gentleman who was an avid collector of rediculously high grade pipes passed away in my neighborhood. Marty Pulvers and i helped his widow get rid of some pipe racks he had:







holds a whopping 90 pipes  Shocked  should set me straight for a while.

Welcome back! Wonderful pipe rack, the burled wood makes me think it might be made by Savinelli?

That's is REALLY nice now that I can see all of it.
Looks to hold 70 pipes, gees I could use 5 of those and I wouldn't have to keep dusting mine.
I reckon my next project it to make some with glass doors. You were lucky to get your hands on that one sir. Wink

That's one beautiful cabinet !! It would NOT be good for me though as after I put the 90 pipes I now have in it, I would then HAVE to buy almost 90 MORE to fill up all the empty racks I would now have !! ( besides, I don't think I have ANOTHER 40+ years left to aquire 'em as I did with these) Enjoy it man !!  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

When taking pictures on your phone, you can change the size internally through the camera settings that will make it much smaller.

In any case, that is a nice piece of pipe furniture. I sold most of my furniture before I moved, as I needed start-up money more than furniture when arriving in a new country. Looking back, I probably should not have sold a lot of the things I did. My newfound wife was thankful for it (it helped us tremendously), but I sold a lot of tobacco that is unattainable nowadays. Ah well, c'est la vie.
