    I found this one just for you t-bear. It looks like he had a nice collection of meers and some look very well smoked. He would not have been the guy to ask, "How many pipes are enough?"[​IMG]

    I dont like hanging as the bad taste of tobacco oils drips down on to the mouth piece. Yes, one should clean regularly, but sometimes the pipe is still hot and then forgets to clean before the next smoke and ....yuk! :)

    With a collection like this, one would need a computer tracking program to rotate :)))). There's an opportunity for a mobile phone app.

    I tried to use conventional multi pipe racks for my freehand collection, and was unsuccessful. So, upon a brilliant suggestion from the "better half" I began searching for vintage pipe stands, in single and doubles. The search for the stands became as enjoyable as looking for pipes. Almost all are 1950's, 60's, 70's Decatur Industries, and a few Italian ceramic. This was my solution to limited space, and finding something that would accommodate the large freehands. My collection has a time period , from the 50-60's, into the 70's & 80's when the freehand's became popular. Then on to the 2000's with the American artisans. It's been a very enjoyable search. :bing:

    I posted pics of my collection a few months back, but here is an updated one. I had decided that 60 pipes was a good amount to have so I sold off 20 or so pipes that never got smoked much. I'm now back up over 80 pipes again! (Not including the cobs) lol The top drawer is my temporary Kaywoodie spot until my new pipe case arrives. Then it'll be filled back up with tobacco like the bottom two drawers.

    Thanks! It's just a cheap pine armoire that I put glass in and built pipe racks for. Holds 42 pipes, which was double the space I needed at the time. Now I'm seriously out of real estate!

    You did a great job on converting that armoire. Hats off to you for the creativity.

    I appreciate the compliment, thanks!

    Here's a shot of my cob rack on top. The first pipe rack I ever built. Threw this together from wood from an old pallet. I outgrew this one quite quickly, but the cobs enjoy it!

    It was only a matter of time before I posted my meager collection... this is the most recent pic. None of my cobs are included in this pic but since I recently got some nicer stems from CCC I keep them there now. As well this pic doesn't include my twofer from Doug, a Briar Poker Nosewarmer and MM Twain Nosewarmer.
