After a suggestion from a friend to turn a pipe holder, I went searching the net for an idea. I found nothing to satisfy me. So, I designed my own. Unlike what I had seen in the net, I rose the top part by six columns on the edge of the holder instead of one column in the centre. With that, I gave some age to it. Instead of the central column, I added my own idea of some woodturning ornaments of ebony matching the handle of the tobacco container lid. I preferred the container to be of wood not as glass jar as I had seen in the net. Also, for the convenience of the smoker, I added lazy Susan system.
I do not ignore the benefit of searching the net for ideas, but after all, I came up with a design that you can not see anywhere in the world of pipe holders.
Only iron bark is used in this project.
