    I remember when I first joined seeing people's cellars and thinking oh my, I would love to have a cellar like that. Thanks to 4noggins, it's come along way from the few tins I could afford before. I'll have to take some pics.

    Yup. I've been poking around to find good containers taht would allow me to keep some information about the tobacco that's inside...
    It's the very beginning, only 11 tobaccoes here, but hope it will grow.

    This is the result, what do you think ?



    Do you see the background ?



    I recently got 5 new ones from The Middle Earth PipeWeed series from Bob Shafer - Just for Him, anyone else has tried those ?
    As 2 already have a label, I am trying to design some sort of label for the 3 left. I'll post that later on.

    @Joshb83: yes I did. the logos come from google search, the description from Tobacco Reviews. I found the containers online actually. On the chinese Ebay where every shop in china has an online equivalent, pipe shops are there too to sell pipes and tobacco related items. They're 15 yuans a piece, so it's about 3 USD. I just got a load of 20 :D.

    Great job but I have a question: how are the Chinese equivalents to spring lid bell or mason jars? The cheap ones from the local dollar store I have purchased all went into the garbage as the seals did not hold at all!

    Those containers are pretty to look at if you have the time.

    It's gonna be tough to cellar any real quantity with them though, (which I think you should be doing as much as you can afford).

    The Ball and Kerr brands of canning jars are the most affordable and QUALITY jars I've found.

    seriously, it's not that time-consuming, and I really enjoy having them that way. In terms of quantity, i bought the sizes according to them amounts I have. There are bigger ones.

    Yes very cool, love the labeling. I don't have a printer so it is just sharpie on the lids.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    @everyone :

    This is a link to the Chinese "ebay". It's obviously in Chinese.
    Taobao

    There are options within your browser to use google translate to have the pages in English. You can see the comments, the scores.
    FYI: red score is good, green score is bad. It took me while to get used to that one.
    Every product has usually 3 scores : conformity to the picture and description, service from the seller, delivery quality.

    If you are serious about buying stuff from there, I will try to help if I can.

    For fear of starting a new thread, as I've seen many on the subject, I thought I would finally get my shit together and properly label, inventory (tobaccocellar.com), and show off what I've amassed in a few short months.

    First is where I spend my time prepping the smoke and enjoying my hobby - a.k.a. the garage:

    I keep my pipes in rotation based on what I feel like smoking and then put them away based on when I used them last. I reuse empty tins to keep ready-smoke bulk at hand and the Korean-made soup pot to dry out any that needs it.

    And how I cellar:

    The big white containers I got from Walmart and simply reversed the container label to further keep the light out. I store intact dated tins within and keep them in a corner of the guest room. The mason jars are in their original packages held in a few shoe boxes in my office. I've currently cellared just over 3.5 lbs. thankfully worth more than I've spent. That helps convince my wife it's an investment just as much as a hobby.

    I've got 13 open tins that I've told myself I will smoke through/give away before I open/purchase more. We all know how that goes.

    Well I finally got around to taking an inventory of my cellar. It's a little wider than it is deep but I'm focusing on increasing the depth right now. Comes out to 12.5 lbs not counting any open or partial tins/jars. I store it under my pipe cabinet and in a cupboard in my sitting room, it's out on the table just for inventory/photo purposes.

    This is about 8 months of cellaring effort which isn't too bad and I still managed to buy enough besides this to enjoy smoking whenever I wanted to.

    You know the moment you realize you should have put the sticker on top instead of on the side, so that you can see what it is without having to take out the jar from the tray each time!

    Left are open for daily use, right is stocked tins, the bigger canisters and jars on the shelf with my pipes

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    I haven't started cellaring tobacco yet, but I'm quite proud of my little chest of pipe paraphernalia!

    Perhaps I'll get around to photographing it sometime soon...

    Ok. Well you should search for the thread with Peck's stash. He has a wall of custom reinforced-shelved cabinets to hold his 700+ pound stash.

    With that in mind, I present my humble offering. I started smoking pipes in 2012. It took.

    October TAD (I had a little $):


    Along the right edge of the picture are the dented tins, so you can guess where I got 80% of this from...

    Cellar (Tins are stored in my favorite piece of Art Deco furniture):

    Lot of folks have more, but at my smoking rate (and with the 95 tins still in the mail from the ridiculous sale at P&C) I should be good for the rest of my life.

    I’m in the market for a new cabinet. The jars are 4 deep. Half the time I end up smoking what’s right in front, rather than digging around and starting an avalanche.

    I wish all tobacco came in the C&D/McClelland/Pease type tins. Those things cellar beautifully. Great shape and so easy to inventory vs all the mason jars, square tins, rounds tins, etc.

    It's small, but there's only two small blends I don't smoke. I'm going for accuracy here. Dialing it in so to speak.
