Hi guys i'm looking into purchasing a Pipe rack for my growing collection that could possible have a place to store my tobacco tins and pipe tools as well. Anyone know of a good source?
I've seen a lot of racks on eBay but to they dont look that great for the prices they want.

That's neat Dudley! Phil the guy with the wood shop is a strange old coot in Wisconsin!

I think old Nero would fit right in around here. He could make racks for Phil's and my pipes.
Five coats of shellac!
I'd think I'd prefer the brown tempra "stain" vs. green though.

Yeah I agree Phil. I think the guy at the ed of the thread over there that used duct tape had a better product.
I've been thinking on this myself.
I have a dresser in my office and only ever used the top drawer.
I sort of discovered by accident that 3 reamaining drawers work well as a "pipe center" of sorts.
The bottom drawer is my "cellar". Pretty bare so far. 8 jars of Bob's Chocolate flake and a few tins in a lock and lock container.
The next drawer up works great for a working stash. It's perfect height to roll my office chair over to and look down to see what sounds good.
And the next up (2nd from the top) is not as tall. Maybe 6 inches or so. I fashioned sort of a reclining bench for pipes and fit it to the drawer. So you just open the drawer and...."hey pipes!".
Someday maybe I'll expand to the top drawer and relocate the mass of tangled cables, stray note pads, and small broken electronics that reside there now.

One of the members here, Sinistertopiary, had a custom made pipe rack. He has the link to the place that makes them in his blog post. You can check out pictures and the link here:

That's slick Phil.
Let me know when Art is done with yours so he can get started on mine.

Very innovative Phil,

I like the ease of access to the pipes.

They are spaced out nicely, they don't have a crowded feel like "regular" pipe rack.
I like the color too.

Just joshin'! I plan to run some pipe racks later this summer. I will probably do a couple cabinets at the same tine similar to my antique ones.

I've been planning to buy some cheap wallmounted dvd-cabinet with glass doors from Ikea and convert it into a pipe cabinet. I'm not the handiest person with tools but how hard can it be?

My tobacco jar collection is starting to increase so much it would soon take up a lot of space on a wall. :D
(I just jar any tin I open now, so as not to have any tobacco dry out)
