BTW, I like ssjones’ suggestion for recycling old belts... they’re something I never throw away and even though I may never be able to use them again, they’re still good leather.
Put ‘em to work!

I followed up on ssjones’ suggestion and procured a leather punch & some screw rivets.

This is my first attempt, retaining the buckle & making a generous enough loop to accommodate one of my large free hands.

Wide, stiff leather and a narrow loop can even hold my jaeger pfeiffe!
I dare your rest to hold that Jägerpfeife on the passenger seat of a moving car! :nana:
Thanks for the feedback. Guess firm, veg tanned 9-12 oz leather is the way to go to make these loop holders.

Interesting. I see how one could make that large loopy stand adjustable to different pipe sizes by using snaps.

Actually, all you’d need to do is punch a few extra holes. These screw rivets don’t take much stress, so I only need to make them finger tight. Also if I want to store or transport them flat, all I need to do is take them apart.

Another option to the screw rivets would be an old pair of cuff links. People don't seem to use them much anymore, so they can be had for cheap at most thrift stores.

That could be very elegant and gentlemen like!

I’m another who makes his own stands from leather belts. You can even buy new appropriately thick & wide belts from somewhere like Walmart. The cost is considerably less than what you’d pay to buy pipe stands. I also like these while clenching a pipe & doing various chores. They slip easily in a pocket, or can be slipped over the belt you’re wearing. If you need to set your pipe down, you have a stand readily available.

I bought some a few years back, they were made by a local artisan, just thick leather put together by a snap, it works great. However, it doesn't work so well for one of my LONGER Churchwardens.

What might work for an exceptionally long pipe is to cut a small wedge out of the broad side of the loop, then the bowl of the pipe can sit outside of the loop, but still have its weight centered over it.

I like the cuff link idea. If the fit seems loose, you can cut a slot into some pieces of cardboard (the size of the cuff link post) and slide them in place to stiffen it up.
