Default Need Input - Pipe Station....???

Hello all ya'all pipe folks....

I mostly hang out in the cigar forums, specifically the retailer section as I build custom humidors....

I have been nudged more than a couple times to build a pipe rack or two... but, I need to say that I have never smoked a pipe nor do I know what would be desired in such a rack. I have seen several versions on the internet, all of which seem to be quite doable.... but, I would like to take it just a little above and beyond what I have seen...

My initial thoughts are to rework this flag display case that I designed and convert it in to a "pipe station".... Obviously, the display portion would be modified to contain and display pipes.... However, the bottom portion would be re-designed to be a humidor.... In that there would be a place to store your blends... perhaps make 10 or 12 compartments in there with spanish cedar dividers.... and have it open towards the front with a space to put any of the tools that you may use on the inside of the lid....

Anyways - any type of input would be greatly appreciated.... and I will dust off the design book and see what WE can come up with.....

That is a cool idea.
Not sure how you would hold the pipes, maybe just flat level shelfs then the pipes could be sit in leather or folding pipe stands.
The bottom portion looks like a good place to store tobacco. Just looking and guessing at the depth of the bottom part of the pictured flag display case, I would say that it needs to be increased, maybe doubled or more. Most pipe smokers store their tobacco in the tins or little mason jars, so I don't know if dividers or compartments would be necessary. Same with the Spanish cedar, since most tobacco is stored in tins and jars the Spanish cedar is not required unless it is a cheap wood to use. Also the seal on the compartment doesn't need to be cigar humidor tight.
