    I am thinking about buying a pipe rack or cabinet. I don't want to display all of my pipes but would like a 6 to 10 pipe rack for resting pipes while I am at home. I want something fairly small to medium size to sit on a table or dresser. I would love to find something made out of Walnut or Cherry. I haven't seen anything that I really like yet but have just started looking today. If anyone would like to show off their rack or cabinet to give me some ideas it would be appreciated. Since I don't have one I will start with a pic of this vintage rack(with an awesome placard) I saw on eBay.

    I have a large number of trademark pirated PipesMagazine.com Pipe Racks for sale, if anyone is interested.
    This is an exact replica of the rack Kevin Godbee uses to display his Charatans Make and Dunhill pipes.

    This is a piece of furniture I got on craigslist for $40, solid wood. I keep pipe cleaners, lighters, fluid, jackknife etc in the drawer. I want to build a shelf for the bottom so I have 2 levels. I use airtight wire bail flip lid jars for storage(from dollar tree).

    Well I have been wanting a rack for a while but didn't have much to spend at the moment so here is my first attempt at building one. Total cost was about $10 and everything except maybe the stain can be bought at hobby lobby or somewhere similar. Also the only tools I used were a drill with a spade bit, scissors and wood glue. Not really an impressive collection yet but I just got started in the hobby. I also included a picture of my shelf. Lots of great inspiration in this thread! Keep it coming!

    OMG Great collections and racks guys. Each photo is so distinctive. Funny, at any given time I only have 4 pipes to my name. I average about a bowl a day in the cool season. I have given a lot of pipes away, but never had them long enough to collect or store them. There is time for change I see.

    When I was knee high, I thought that my late grandpa made the clouds in the sky with his cigar smoke, only to find out later it was his pipe smoke.

    Pardon the terrible photo, my phone has issues. This is my man corner. On the other side of the chair is my desk, and to the left of it all is my recliner. From the left on my pipe rack I have my Aldo Velani, Baronet Bruyere, Uhle's unknown, Grabow Grand Duke, Kaywoodie Saxon, one of my cobs, and an unknown Briar Pipe from eBay that is heavily oxidized with missing stain that is a cool shape that I'd like to fix up. Underneath are some mason jars of tobacco, and the plastic cabinet to the right has many more sample sized bags of lots of good stuff.

    My grandfather's grandfather gave him this secretary when he was a kid and my grandfather left it to me when he died. It works great for pipe central. There are 3 drawers, i mean a cellar, in the bottom waiting to be filled.

    Here's mine. Big cabinet. There are two sides but currently only one side contains pipe stuff. The goal to have the entire thing (both sides) eventually full of baccy only. I am getting a nice shelf system soon in my office and all my pipes will be out there. The pull out shelf where my pipes currently sit are going to be my rotation baccys.

    The Cabinet

    The Pull out shelf

    The meers.

    The sentimental pipes...First pipe, first restoration, bought on world travels.

    Newest addition rack. The partition move to adjust for different sizes.

    Two of my three sav autographs sitting in a leather couch. I wish they made bigger versions of these, like a 8 or 10 seat. I really like it. The autographs need to be restored. I haven't gotten to them yet.

    And on my smoking chair side table. My favorite meer. My Panel S. Yanik in a Crab Man pipe rest. Next to my Brebbia pipe nails and my ejames tamper.

    @austinxpipe...its not actually a pipe rack. My local post office was closing down and I dug this out of their skip. It a rack for ye olde postage rubber stamps. Unfortuantley its a little short and has to stand on a box for the pipes to sit properly...it do however rotate, endless fun.

    Spyder, I have to agree, that is awesome! That being said, please don't laugh at my meager collection. As you can see, only 2 pipes so far but I'm getting one custom built and a rack is on order. Most of my collection is in cigars at the moment.

    I have a Savinelli rack that holds 36 pipes. I have a couple of 6 pipe holders but so far only one of them has 2 pipes in it. Here is a pic of it open.

    Harris: someone had a Savinelli like yours on Ebay last week, that one really caught my eye. The birdseye on the wood looked amazing. And, it appears to fit your larger pipes quite well, not always a given.

    Here is my current setup. An old smoke stand we've had for 25 years holds my weekly rotation in a corner of our dining room. The overflow is in the family room. It looks like there are now three Sherlock Holmes cases in this thread. I cut the holes into a u-shape and added an elastic cord to each row, to hold my larger pipes. A 12-pipe rack holds more. I can't resist a Westie themed stand and picked up this hefty 3-pipe rack for some of my Taylor Ashtons (also cut the holes into u-shapes).

    @Spyder...Where did you get your rack?

    @Cigarmaster...Where did you get your rack?

    Both really nice. I have having some issues. I have a couple of rack but I favor larger pipes and am having a hard time fitting my pipes on them.

    In November I ordered a 48 pipe rack and 2 24 pipe cabinets from Ken Lamb, who custom made them for me. They are made from walnut and birdseye maple. He sent me some shots a few days ago just before he shipped them off to me here in Canada, I will post some shots when they arrive, You can google Ken to see his work.

    I love Birdseye maple. I'm building a tamper display rack for a guy out of Birdseye. I'll post some pictures when its done. I'm going to build a cabinet in Birdseye soon I think.

    I love all those pictures. Unfortunately I cannot reciprocate. The pipes that I'm not presently smoking are in document boxes in one bookcase. The twenty or so pipes in the current roster are on a tray near the foreign dictionary bookcase, where the tobacco bought in 2010 and 2011 also resides. The tobacco acquired in 2009 lives in the bookcase next to me desk and the talmud-torah bookcase. Dunhill tobacco is in cardboard boxes under the bed. There's tobacco everywhere. I can't read half the books that I own now because my tobacco is occupying prime real-estate in bookcases, in front of the books.

    Fortunately I know at all times where my open tins and pipe cleaners are. They're on a large stack of books near the bedside table and in the cookery section.

    Thanks for the plug Al. I'll work with anyone to put together a size/design that works for you, using a wood, and finish of your choice. I had a bit of a backlog, and I'm finally getting caught up. I need to get back with gwtwdbss as I am designing a piece for him.

    Al, thanks, the birds eye is pretty cool on this thing. I believe it is made out of burl wood. Did you happen to see what my rack sold for, I am curious what they are going for. I am pretty sure it is no longer made.

    eaglerico, I got mine back in 2001 from Joyaal's Liquor in R.I. He was in the cigar and pipe business as well as the liquor biz and I traded him a box of Cuban cigars for it. I got a hell of a deal.

    Well the criteria when I built this rack a couple years back was to hold a full week rotation, had to have onboard storage for pipe cleaners because I hate going searching for them, it had to be cheap (under $20.00 material) and couldn't take more than an hour to build from start to finish (less finish) I chose maple because I had some laying around. It had to sit solidly on my desk and be heavy enough it would not get knocked off easily due to plans, or papers and clutter. If anyone wants dimensions I can send them along. Contructions methods are about as easy as they come and even those who have a jig saw, a hole saw and some sandpaper could make a reasonable facimile.

    @austinxpipe...its not actually a pipe rack. My local post office was closing down and I dug this out of their skip. It a rack for ye olde postage rubber stamps. Unfortuantley its a little short and has to stand on a box for the pipes to sit properly...it do however rotate, endless fun.

    Oh cool! I'll keep that in mind when our local PO closes

    @Spyder...Where did you get your rack?

    Found my rack on E-Bay. I have a couple from the same fella and they are both very well made!

    I love seeing all your pipe racks! Especially the larger ones... It makes me feel less guilty about how many I have. Haha!

    Just wait until you see what gwtwdbss and I are creating. Taking an antique design and redesigning it to hold more pipes and storage,
