    I turned 40 yesterday, passing a milestone with friends and family. I'd been searching for a new rack since my collection has been slowly outgrowing my rackspace, despite my greatest attempts to hold back on PAD. I found this on eBay last week and figured it was worth the price, love the look and the grain on many of the veneer faces is just awesome. It's made by Mastro De Paja:

    Here is what the outside veneer looks like, this is the top, but all of the sides are veneer as well.

    Very cool! The veneer definitely is pretty. Hold 13, right?

    13 is correct! I'll post a pic when I fill it, gotta figure out which pipes are going in. One of the reasons I bought this is because it will keep the light out and theoretically my stems won't oxidize so quickly.

    That is pretty sweet

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

    Wow that is an amazing rack Sam. Happy Birthday by the way. That would be a perfect rack for Vulcanites, keeping them out of the sun when its closed up. The veneer is amazing.

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

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."
