Here is a pic I forgot to post of the racks I mentioned in the above post. I have 5 of these spread out in different locations throughout the house.
@KA9FFJ, one of the main reasons I liked those style of racks, is because they would easily hold a variety of shapes and sizes of pipes. Some of my Syroco pipe racks would only hold smallish pipes.
@jfreedy, I apologize for missing your post back in July. The sellers ebay ID is "fac55." I just checked their feedback, and they are showing no feedback left in over a year. I suppose you could try contacting them, and seeing if you can get a response. I had considered contacting him years ago, to see if he could make a rack from cocobolo and wenge, or maybe bocote and bloodwood. I figured since he was working off a template, it might be easy enough, but I never got around tuit.
@Charles, the model train on top of the pipe rack is another fantastic hobby. Are you into model trains as enthusiastically as you are pipe collecting?
