Pipe Cabinet on stand for a well known American pipe carver. Cherry, White Oak, Gabon Ebony, curly Maple, Smoke tree Burl. Handmade pin and key locking mechanism. I’m pleased with every portion of this make which is rare for me. A real sense of satisfaction.

SWEET!!! So do tell, who is the manufacture of the pipes you made this for? What pipe forums are you on? What are your two favorite blends to smoke?

@hjt Thanks very much for the kind words. This cabinet was made for American pipe maker Scott Klein, protégée of Russian American pipe maker Alex Florov. I am not on any pipe forums. It would be really enjoyable but I’m drowning in work. My favorites are Red Cake, Fragrant Matured Cake, and Wilderness cut in half with either Red Cake or Best of Show.

-- Cheers!
