    If you were to make one of these for someone what would be the cost?

    Polymoog, damn fine job sir! :thu2: I'm getting together my pipe display case/rack materials. I was going to whitewash/pickling the "inside" of the case where the pipes sit because I thought it would the pipes would get more light and be seen easier. I see I was definitely right. It looks damn good, especially playing off the darker wood. Mine case won't be anywhere near as elaborate as yours though. I have the skills but not the willpower for all that. I'll be happy if my case stays together. :eek: What color stain is that?

    Day-um. I'm so jealous of folks who have a natural talent for building. That is an amazing piece of furniture.

    Wow. :gjob:

    Hey man, I have some questions about how you made it. Mainly how did you make the little cradles for each pipe (little half circle). I could use a jig saw but that seems too inaccurate. Router? If so how? Table router? and what bit?

    I'm going to build a little pipe stand because I think most pipe stands are ugly or over priced (or both).

    I'm new, clearly, but it looks to me as if the bar has been set and the glove has been laid...

    is it wrong that I'm at least as envious of your shop in the background as I am of the cabinetry you make? You are a talented craftsman and my guess is that you could make a decent living doing custom work like this, based solely on this forum from what I see above.

    Well done! :)

    I don't know how he did it, but I've done similar half cirlces by drilling holes in stock that's 2x wider than needed, then cutting it in half lengthwise.

    This is usually the easiest way in my limited experience- a hole saw (or forstner bit) of the proper diameter (an inch I would think as sufficient in the case of a pipe rack) at the proper spaces, then rip it with a table saw and ease the edges with either a sander or a quick run with a roundover bit in a router.

    Hi, thats exactly how they were made and of course you end up with 2 racks after you ripped them in half!
