I haven't been following this thread. Wow! Nice rack! I mean the pic on Clint's computer. :lol: Seriously, do you have a set of plans for that? I would really like to build one. Very nice.

Thanks, Bob. I threw away my sketches when I finished the rack...Below's what I had scanned and fished out of my recycling bin, (sorry some of the pics came so big).

The whole thing is oak (but if I went back, I'd go with walnut instead,as the oak is very hard.)
-The 4 shelves: 20"x3"x 6/16". Nine 1"-holes every 2 inches. (The center of the first hole is at 2", the center of the second hole at 4", etc...)
Notice notches 1/2" from either end to accomadate vertical wall-mount
-The eight brackets are made of the same wood, 6/16" thick. I fashioned these after the ones on the Simenon (double humped)
-The two vertical mounts are 1/2 square dowels. They're about 28" long. The shelves are 8" apart and the mounts continue a couple of inches passed the last bracket.

Let me know if you have any other questions...good luck!

Picked this up on ebay yesterday. Liked it because it held 14 and was older and had a little character. This is going to sit on a 160+ year old buffet in my dining room. I imagine a cabinet will replace it some day, but with any luck PAD won't make more than 14 necessary for a while.

Very nice. However, if my experience with Pipe Acquisition Disorder is anything to go by, "replace" is probably the wrong word; more like "augment" ;)

Hey, Brim. What are those rusticated pipes that you have several of?

These pipes( If it's the one's I think you are referring to ) are pipes from The Magical Fairy Wood. That's what The Wife calls the one Brim sent me anyhow :lol:

Good smokers.

We just moved about a week ago. I always kept my pipes in a big mason jar so when we got into this house i wanted to hang my pipes. So i got those toothbrush holders from wal mart. The ones with the two suction cups on the back and took the cups out and screwed them into the wall. Maybe a good idea or bad however i thought it was good for a laugh anyway lol.

I bought a nice vintage rack off the bay, it's solid walnut and designed to hold 8 pipes but to my dismay very few of my pipe will fit in it, I have resorted to putting them in upside down with is not how it was intended to be used. So I will be designing and fabricating a custom rack very soon, it seems most "traditional" racks are designed for "traditional" pipes a.k.a. straight billiard style not freehands or larger styles.

Yes, I have experienced problems with a few of my larger-stemmed pipes, too :roll: Just one of those 'First World problems', I'm afraid ;)
