    I spent many hours trying to figure out what to do with my growing jarred tobacco collection. An unfinished basement wall in my man cave provided a great solution for storage. Nail gun and some cheap pine boards was all I needed.

    Hope that link worked, just learning how to use the site.

    Thank you for sharing, that is absolutely amazing. I now have a new goal.

    That's really cool. I'm guessing you don't live in an earthquake zone.

    That is very well put together! Looks terrific too.

    It looks much nicer than this:

    That is some man cave, too! Congrats!

    Great! You going to build a pine library ladder so you can scoot along the top shelf with ease?

    I don't really care if the cup is half full or half empty, I just want something to sip on.

    Thanks everybody. Not in an earthquake zone thankfully, but I'm thinking I'll have a nightmare soon of the visual imagery you provoked. I had piles of little boxes of jars not organized by tobacco type or alphabetically, a mess. Could never find what I had or wanted New member question ... how do I get the permanent message or quote below the posting? I entered one , but doesn't appear and can't figure out where to find where I originally typed it. Thx

    My initial thought, too....

    If I understand your question, you can put the quote anywhere you like, by copying and pasting, selecting and hit the "quote" button above the compose box...

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Who's the lady, and why is she blocking the tobacco with a picture?

    Curl: gotta leave some room for yet to be tried tobaccos . I got a backlog of untried tins ready to fill the gaps. I gotta quit reading tobacco reviews and cellaring habits of members on this website. Done buying tobacco for a very long time if not ever (probably an untrue statement) . Only 3 tobaccos have evaded my pursuit . If my tastes don't change va, va/per I'm good for a long time .

    The woman blocking the view of the wall is my picture hanging wife, who thinks I'm crazy

    He's asking about the signature line I believe. Look in your profile and add it in the signature line.

    If you don't tell me the whole thing doesn't spin around and disappear into the wall to be totally hidden, I will be very disappointed!

    Splendid. I wish I had those skills to create something like that. Really nice work.

    Outstanding cellar. Excellent concept & execution, which I would love to emulate, but must leave my jars in their original boxes for mobility (I live in a red-flag zone, & given enough warning, will evacuate my dogs, firearms & ammo, pipes & baccy, whisky, & then the wife - in that order).

    BTW - curious as to the jar count (pints, quarts, & half-gallons).

    You know your wife is pondering what you could build her now. That shelf may have ruined your life, but it is a nice shelf.

    I'm sure the one she has planned for the laundry room will be just as nice.

    Nice to see someone who has more open jars than me! I don't know whether to feel good or behind the 8 ball. Nice job!
