    Yesterday I went to IKEA and purchased an ALEX 5 drawer unit on sale for $69. My cellar and pipe collection isn't very large, so it works for me. Next I plan on lining the bottoms of the drawers and possibly some sort of dividers for the pipes.

    Drawer 1...my rotation of pipes.

    Drawer 2...some estate pipes I picked up cheap.

    Drawer 3...

    Drawer 4...

    Drawer 5...

    Awesome set up. The handle holes should also allow the pipes to breath a little bit.

    Cool. Will you be drilling holes for ventilation?

    Okay, but how long did it take to assemble?

    Btw, that's a great setup.

    Sure, the shelves cost $69, but the amount of jewelry and flowers you'll have to buy your wife to make up for the inevitable IKEA argument has got to be closer to $500

    Love it!

    No, the handles are open slots for your fingers (.75"x4")

    About an hour and a half. Not as bad expected.

    Went to buy the $69 cabinet and walked out spending just over $200 and then $96 for lunch at "The Big Bowl".

    edit...thanks for the kind words.

    Wow ... only $69 for this little baby? I gotta get me one of those ... right now I store tobacco in my desk, and pipes in my living room shelves between books.

    That's looks pretty sharp. You mean to tell me they didn't throw in a free Falcon?

    Nice setup. It’s a great feeling to have pipes and accessories organized. That sparks joy.

    NPOD id just like to say I got that reference! hahah

    Nice cabinet, small, neat and tidy. Maybe some of the that rubbery shelving stuff to keep the pipes from sliding around and getting scuffed?

    I like it!
    At the moment my pipes sit on a bookshelf in empty ball jar boxes.... looks terrible.

    Looks great!
    Functional and minimalistic and that's one of the things I like about IKEA.
    Their practical and tested no fuss-designs.

    I have a small dresser used for tobacco storage, it's from the Hemnes series.
    The black-brown variant of course.

    Thanks. Great idea...I was thinking felt or fabric.

    Thanks. I was keeping everything in wooden cigar boxes. This is much better.
