    I recently finished piecing together my pipe cabinet. I've had the bottom part of the cabinet for a long time, and I've been looking to add a top section for about just as long. Of all the places, I found the top section in my uncles garage. It just looked like a good fit. I took measurements and sure enough, it was an exact fit. Next I set out to find a pipe rack that would fit in the shelf. Easier said than done. I finally found a 12 pipe straight rack with the proper dimensions. Prepped and painted everything semi-gloss black and bolted it together. I'm now looking for a cabinet to match the little "cellar" cabinet on the left side, to add to the right side and make the whole setup symmetrical. It does have a door, but it's open for the picture. Btw, Yes I'm keeping the groovy 70's wood paneling in the man cave.

    Make aromatics great again.

    That's a great looking pipe cabinet. Looks like the top piece was always part of it. Well done.

    Good job! I've been planning to make my own cabinet, so let me ask you something: all pipe slots seem to be taken. Are you sworn not to buy any new pipes, or do you plan on expanding it for any new ones?

    Nice set-up, as jkrug says the top piece looks like it belongs there. Oh yeah, I "dig" the groovy paneling.

    I suppose you could always stain it dark!

    Nice set up!

    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.

    Very nice and well done.

    BTW.. Why not just build a small cabinet to match the existing cellar on the left?

    Looks like a fun place to hang out and breathe in the smell of delicious tobacco...

    Is that a pipe cabinet or a small pipe and tobacco store?? WOW!

    That's impressive. You could smoke one pipe a day and never repeat the same one for months.

    So what about the smell of all those exposed pipes. Does the room/house (man cave) have a "stinky pipe" smell to it?

    Thanks fellas. It's the centerpiece in the man cave now. It stands over 6ft. tall.

    @echie, A full cabinet won't stop me from getting more. The ones in the picture are just the "first round draft picks." I have a few drawers full as well. P.A.D. is a force to reckon with. Damn you P.A.D.!

    @Harold, Heavily smoked pipes can make for a stinky pipe, but these only see a bowl or two per week at best and have plenty of resting time, so they aren't too bad. The man cave does have a bit of a bar room smell to it, but with two big ass dogs, it's the least offensive odor in the house. You haven't smelled anything until you're stuck in a house with a 140 pound German Shepherd who has helped himself to the garbage can when nobody was home...

    Don't look that tall which is a good thing. Great melding of parts. No hint of a Frankenstein creation.

    Dave, that's a better pipe display than you find in most tobacco shops these days and probably more pipe tobacco. Trying to give Peck a run for his money? Dutch

    I think you've hit a homerun. Well done! All you need now is a comfortable chair nearby (and yeah, keep the paneling).

    Very nice work! What were the odds that that top would fit? Meant to be I say.

    Very very nice looking.
    Can't really tell that it's all pieced together from different parts.

    Ahahaaa... By the way, you're the proud owner of my 100th post which just made me "Member" of this nice Brotherhood of the Briar.

    Now that's a collection of pipes! Nice setup. I wonder who has the most pipes on this forum would be fun to see.

    probably more than 50 pipes there (also some others in drawers?), looks amazing. For how long have you been collecting them?

    I like how compact it is. Maybe you should get P&C to offer something like that as a kit? "Best of PAD and TAD."
