    Earth: The Insane Asylum of the Universe. Nowhere else could things be more messed up.

    Does a culture based on separation and competition, of scientific sophistication and mideval religion, offer happiness even as it ravishes the Earth that sustains it?

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

    That sounds promising, I can't wait to see the result.

    @sebastian. I'm still drawing up the plans, and gathering the materials. It will be nice. My biggest problem these days is my full-time job keeps getting in the way. Don't they realize I have things to do. Lol. I'm just happy my clients are patient fellow pipe smokers.

    Everyone has such nice pipe stands. Here is one of mine. Wouldn't mind someday trading it for a pipe.

    Hey, that is pretty cool Archer! Steam-punkish!

    We were goofing around flea markets last weekend. No pipes but I found this neat little corner rack for $9, to go above my smoking stand. It holds three of my favorite pipes and Westie stands. It fits in with our dining room furniture, which is also circa 1930's (hey, coincidentally the same age as that Comoy's) We have a lot of old Westie/Scottie dogs and one fits nicely on top to go with the theme.

    Here a new picture is my setup:


    This is my jarred baccy and most of my unopened tins:

    The cigar box in the back is where I keep my snuff, the two in the front are baccy. The one on the left is for non-english blend, the right for english/balkan blends. I also have two unopened two year old tins of Balkan Sasieni:

    Well, it isn't gonna be the biggest or the best, well , I think perhaps it will be the best to me anyway. It will months of collaboration and true piece of art when finished. I grew up around wood and adore the finer ones. They
    seem to be more scarce as time goes on.

    To give you a hint. It is cabinet or a place that a fellow and rest his hand on. Underneath will be a storage of my pipes. The design looks to be a 36 to 48 pipe cabinet. Something that has not been seen since the 1950's. At least not in a free standing floor design. Trust me , It will be ground breaking.

    Until then, this is an old Walnut piece a picked up to tide me over, sitting on a Cherry Pennsylvania House serving table that my Mother gave me.

    I just used my Dremel sanding tool to grind the u-shapes into the bottom. This wood was pretty soft, so it wasn't too terribly hard to do. It just needed a bit of control to shape

    Below are some pictures of my cabinet. It is actually a book case my great-grandfather made during the depression era. I inherited the cabinet in 2005 when my great-grandmother passed away. I primarily used it as a display/book case. It wasn't until just a few months ago that the thought occurred to me to use it as my pipe cabinet. The thought should have struck me sooner, I can't believe it sat under my nose that whole time. It is certainly very special knowing that the cabinet has been handed down and that my great-grandfather was also known to puff a pipe or two.

    I love that bookcase Jeff. I'm looking for the same thing, it matches our dining room furniture set (from 1927) perfectly. I can't convince my wife to let me use the China cabinet for pipes. She wants to keep our China there, which makes no sense...
    (BTW: I showed my wife your case, she says "that's not a book case, that is a China cabinet". See what I'm working with here?, )

    I appreciate the compliment Al. I failed to mention earlier that when I thought about converting my bookcase to pipe cabinet, my lady friend said to me, "your just now thinking about that, I thought a long time ago that you should use it for your pipes." I was shocked, to say the least. But I know I have a keeper.

    I peruse the antique shops in my area about every month or so and I haven't come across another cabinet like it, but I know they are out there. It really is perfect and although I want to outgrow it, it keeps my TAD and PAD in check.

    I hope one day you are able to find that "china/pipe" cabinet you've been looking for.

    Pete I love that cabinet. I really like the left hand side...the way you see the rectangle shape through the glass oval. It doesn't unbalance it at all, it's looks like Owl eyes stuffed with goodies.

    Uberman3rica, what is the pipe that is in the pipe rack with the duck, I am interested in the middle pipe. I have just won a pipe that looks very similar to that but has no info on it. I would love to know who made it, the one I have seems to have a Danish style to it. Let me know. Thanks.

    Here she is! I worked on this last fall after getting fed up with having my pipes everywhere and constantly collecting dust. It holds 51 pipes and has 2 sliding plexiglass doors on the top for the pipes and 2 on the bottom for the tobacco and accessories. I haven't done much woodworking in the past so this was a fun and rewarding learning experience. I'm not much of a cigar smoker but my local tobacco shop sells the empty boxes for $1 each which make for a cheap and handsome place for things like pipe cleaners and such on top of my dresser. Oh and take note that I have plenty of room to expand my collection.

    I've been looking all over to see if I could find out what this gorgeous little pipe cabinet might be worth. I haven't really found anything so I thought I would ask here. You guys look like you might know a little something about them. It is 24"t x 22.5w x 14.5d. It opens on both sides. It has one spot on the bottom that is knicked up a little. Do any of you know what it might be worth if I were to sell it?
    Thanks!

    Here is my setup. I have some more bulk in mason jars and some uncleaned pipes in a drawer. The majority of these pipes were purchased back in 1999-2000. I gave up pipe smoking for cigarettes in my early 20's, and returned last year when turned 30. The tobacco was all purchased this year in an attempt to regain the cellar that I had lost. The racks are all Ebay, Craiglist, and Gifts from A.S.P. forum members from back in the day. Racks and tobacco are on a cheap Ikea "Billy" bookcase.

    I've added a couple of pipes since the picture, a Stanwell Silke Brun 139 and a Castello Sea Rock #17, so the little Conway Bulldog is now sitting in the bottom of the rack.

    This has been such an enjoyable show-off thread and one I have been keeping up with. Very interesting to see all these wonderful pipe racks, stands and cabinets. I'll now update my previous post which consisted of a single image of a pipe-less rack and add the following.

    The first few images is of a desk I am converting into a pipe/tobacco cabinet which has been in my family for over 80 years and has been handed down from my Great Grandfather.

    Now for a few small pipe racks.

    This is cellar number one located in a bedroom Armoire.

    I love the old desk Durham!

    I consolidated all of my racks and stands into one cabinet, an old bow-front oak cabinet found at a junk store. It keeps the dust off the pipes and most importantly, out of the reach from our cat. Three "Fairfax" racks fit perfectly across each shelf. I have a collection of "Scottie" pipe stands and those are on the top shelf. I put a set of LED lights in, one for each level.
