Wall-hung 15-pipe cabinet
Materials: Honduran Mahogany, Sipo, Maple
Lower City Joinery’s principal builder, Mike Kennedy, began making pipe racks in response to a dearth of handmade racks on the market. As an avid collector himself, he understood that collectors of fine handmade pipes do not want to put them on mass produced, ill-considered racks.
The floating mahogany panel satisfies the collectors’ need to keep the harmful effects of light off the precious briars while the space around the panel teasing the eye of the curious with a peek at the glorious contents within—an invitation to inspect and admire. Inside, the pipes are set off nicely by the ship-lapped maple slat cabinet back.
