This is how it looked last month the shelf under it has tobacco and now a 3rd shelf holds pipes.

And this is Now. PAD/TAD getting out of hand.

Forgive the varying quality... I'm hoping Santa brings me a better camera.
This is the main corner; 5 racks in a small space.


Two more racks. The top rack are Christmas presents from SWMBO. The middle row are all Petersons, the lower row are all Italian. The bottom two shelf rack is by Two Cousins Racks.


Close up on the main rack. All are made by North American carvers. Rack by Ken Lamb.


Three churchwardens. Rack by Two Cousins Racks.


Three level rack by Chuck's Racks (it's a shame he doesn't make racks anymore). All are British pipes. The 6 pipe Decauter rack holds the odds and ends.


Antique wall rack holding pipes owned by Dad and Granddad.

I'm not at home so I cant take a picture with my pipes in them, so I'll use the ones that were used on ebay. The one with the humidor is nice. The humidor/price/included pipes were what got me. The rack with the duck is What I'm most proud of. My favorite pipes go there.

Rack and the small dark pipe were found at a antique store for under $20 out the door. The rest of the briars were bought from a member here. Thanks Lonestar! Its an early Christmas gift for me from the family.
Sorry its on the TV for the pic, my computer desk is a mess. And yes, it is a PVC pipe rest. Had some scraps and got the idea. The Great Dane don't fit well, but my other cobs fit just fine. Well, except the minis.

I keep most of my pipes in shadow boxes because I hate the dust that collects on them in the Bar area (still unfinished thats why there is so much dust) it does a great job in displaying as well as protectiong them.

That's a pretty neat transformation Lawrence, wish I had more of my grandfathers things. Also a good reason not to discard something as at the time, you might know the potential! I have some homemade drawers from my wife's grandfathers work bench. He had them built-in and when they tore the house down, I saved some drawers. They're made with salvaged wood from the railroad, when the water towers were removed for diesel locomotives. I have one hung in our rec room with my toy knights from when I was a kid.

First two pics are of racks I keep in our computer room. Big one on desk was made from a CD rack.





Don't know what this was made for,picked it up at a garage sale. I use it in the shop to hold pipes that need restoring.


This is not really a rack but it does hold pipes, 108 when filled.
