    I was browsing around the website today and read that there was no more gallery and some folks want to see other peoples collections. Well, I have a few. As some of you may know I use to collect pipes and stopped about ten or more years ago and went back to those nasty Camel coffin nails. In the past few months I've been try'en to quite and have gone back to collecting pipes and have more now then I ever had. For those whom are interested, here's a few of my favorites. Now y'all know why I need to make Pipe racks. Sorry for the poor quality, I should have used my better camera, they look much nicer in person.
    If you notice, the 11 pipe pipe racks I made have much more room in them for the bigger pipes but I was lazy and already had my Free-hands in a rack so I just put the pipes that hadn't a home in them.

    That's a fantastic collection you have!:appl:
    I love those pipe racks as well!
    Just one question: Do you have to remove the mouthpieces of the Churchwarden pipes in picture 3 to get them in and out of the rack?

    Thank you both. Yes indeed I do have a varied taste in pipes, basically anything a bit out of the ordinary. No Golf club pipes for me.
    And yes, I have to take quite a few apart to get them into the racks but, those I don't smoke anyway. I smoke mostly a cob not pictured so all my nice ones don't get damaged because of my clumsiness or forgotten and left sitting some place. Notice the rubber bands on some of the racks holding in pipes, well I'm hoping I can eliminate that with a simple but yet much nicer looking device on my next pipe racks.

    Great collection, RP! Like the fish pipe, and
    the first one with a windscreen. Very unique.

    I like the ones with the silver lattice on the shank (are those old medicos?) The last pipe has some serious juju!! --Star of David, Crucifixes, is that a witch's cauldron?!?! What's the story of this pipe? Where did you acquire such a piece? Ever smoke it? Details, MAN, details!

    Nice collection. I don't know if I could buy that many pipes and have so many remain apparently unsmoked though. Awful lot of new-looking chambers I see in the mix!

    Re: Your will.

    Send me an email so I can get you the correct spelling of my name. I don't want all of your pipes. I'd settle for half of them. I'm not greedy.

    Thank you in advance.
    Your best friend.

    No, that one has never been smoked. It was made in Siebnen, Sweden by Brchin H. Schnyder pipe factory obviously for a Jewish man in or around the 30 or 40's I believe. That's all I know. Cant any thing on the maker.
