Quartered White Oak, Walnut Burl, and Gabon Ebony. Cabinet still to be fumed with aqueous ammonia but otherwise complete. What makes this cabinet unique is the door baffle system which allows the cabinet to vent properly without doors being open or otherwise piercing the carcass.
UPDATE: last photograph represents cabinet post-fuming. No stain or dye involved.

-- Cheers!

You must own a lot of pipes. My wife always told me when I still smoked one, that 2 pipes is enough.

Thanks, Alex. @croquetman while I have a nice pipe collection, pipe cabinets and humidors posted on here are for clients, including this cabinet. It will house only part of his collection, as he has well over 100 handmade pipes.

-- Cheers!

Great job. I’m a pipe smoker and that would look nice in my man cave.

Fine craftsmanship through and through! Where in c
Chattanooga are you located? I’m in North Hixson across the boat ramp of Chester frost Park. I’d certainly like to converse and study from such an experienced woodworker. Thanks for your post.

Looks good, I like the door design. I am sure the fuming will take it to another level.

Amazing work Scott. What a difference the fuming makes. Your projects make me want to start smoking pipes.
