What pipe racks do you have?

I think I should do some shopping or requesting.

Nothing fancy. A bunch of those circular lazy Susan types with the ugly glass jar. One or two singles and a couple of sixers.

I wish the top had open slots instead of holes. If you get in a hurry you can break a stem pulling one out.

Same here, thought I think only a couple of them has pipes in it and they sit inside the hutch of an old secretary desk. Most of my pipes are kept in the drawers.

I make my own. I bought one on eBay and used it as a template to make more. I just use pine and stain it. They end up running about $10 a piece holding either 7 or 10 pipes.

I’ve got a mess of ‘em.
Singles up to Seven Day Set racks.

My favorite single:

My secret Santa gave me a really nice 7 day circular rack last year:

Most of them are old ones found in antique shops or on eBay.
You can see some of them on top of and inside this cabinet:

I am particularly fond of a couple I made from porcelain hunting dog figurines:

Depending on how many pipes you have or expect to have, a cabinet really helps to clean things up.
The cabinet was my wife's idea, but once she gave it to me (another Christmas present), I grew to really like it.

I recognize one pipe in this cabinet. Bottom shelf, second from the left, looks like the dog is sniffing it.

Most of my pipes reside in a curio cabinet with a variety of racks. My small collection of high end pipes sit on a really cool Neal Yarm magnet stand on the top shelf. The next two shelves have two 10 pipe Decatur stands. One with holes and one I cut the holes into notches. I really dislike the stands with holes. It's a pain to get pipes in and out of then and some bents won't fit in them at all. I need to fix the other one.....some day. I do have a variety of single stands as well. One handmade from a CPSer that I don't think is active anymore that I really like, a multitude of plastic folding stands, a couple Anthony Harris single pedestal magnet stands that are pretty cool, and a cool single stand in the shape of a fish.

You've seen these before in another thread. I too hate the racks with stem holes but find some are too upright for use after modification. I made the two tier lazy Susan rack on the right and should make another maybe. I also made the clay holder from some pallet wood.

I made these with a drill, dremel tool, and sandpaper. The first two are mahogany and the last is poplar.ImageImageImage

Nicest racks I've ever seen were on a Sephardic (Spanish) Jewish lady I knew, not far from here. Really something to behold.

For my birthday, my wife bought me a nice 6-pipe rack from SmokingPipes. I think that she was of the idea that it would somehow limit my PAD - like once it's full, that's it. It didn't take long for my collection to surpass what this rack could hold. :rotfl:
