My first project that I have posted is a 24×6x24 pipe smoking cabinet that holds (36) pipes. As shown below:

Now its time to start on the base unit. I need storage for my pipe tobacco which is stored in a number of different sized and shaped containers. Mason jars of different sizes, round or square metal tins, gasket-lid jars, etc…

That can be accomplished rather easily, I would think, with standard fixed or adjustable shelving.

I also need storage for pipe cleaners, lighters, tobacco tampers, cleaning tools, tobacco pouches and leather carryall for pipes when I’m mobile. So drawers would fit the bill there.

With the hutch unit being 24” high, I’m thinking of a base unit 42” high and 12-15” deep.

The big dilemna for me is whether I should go with solid doors with separate drawers, or make interior drawers possibly stacked vertically, and then glass paned doors to dress it up a bit.

Stay tuned as this starts coming together!
