…has it's advantages. After a year of looking for a pipe rack, I just couldn't cough up the measly $15 for something that I knew I could build myself. So I started on this last night & finished it this morning. It cost me $0.00 & albeit a li'l ugly- at least it's not a sailboat shape + means more to me than most things I could have bought. Here were me supplies:

-1 chunk of wood from the fire pit kindling
-2 screws
-li'l stain & glue
-leftover pleather from an upholstery project
-1 metal handle from a paint can

Great job! It gets the job done. Nothing wrong with frugal. That's more $$ for tobacco now.  Wink

Although I can't say I want one like it, what matters is that you like it and it suits your purpose well.  Wink

If you had said you bought that for $25 online, I would have believed you. Which means you could probably sell it for $25 online. Get back to that wood pile!

Very nice indeed.
