    So, I found this old cabinet that we haven't used in ages, I think it was a video tape cabinet. Anyway, decided to see what I could do with it. I came up with the idea of a hanging pipe rack/cabinet. The pipes are suspended by some nylon cord with a simple loop fitted with a catch so they won't slip. Had all of the parts from various other projects. Took about 15 minutes. Not the prettiest or fanciest but does the job in an offbeat kind of way.

    Nice job making use of what you got

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    Quite unique, could be a lynch mob of anti smokers in there. I like it.

    Repurposing is great. Nice job!

    Know your limits but always push the envelope.

    Better a pipe rack than letting it go to waste. And it looks good.

    I especially like the Oom Paul.

    Thanks Philip. That Oom Paul came from Jost's, which was a shop in St. Louis that wentout of business in the mid 80's. I bought it there around 1982 or '83. Second pipe I ever bought. Still smokes great!

    Well done mate.

    “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of
    anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life,
    nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
