In most cases, an impressive rack is overrated, more show than function. You can read that sentence anyway you see fit
I had to read that twice to see what you did there. I think I'm slowing down. :shock:

It gets better after the sixth time. As anyone with a nice pipe rack can tell you, familiarity invites appreciation. You can read that sentence any way you see fit. I'm not easily impressed by a nice rack, but I like a good one when I see it. :shock:

I run a small hotel in New Orleans. It's in Louisiana, in case you're thinking of another New Orleans I've never heard of.

Pipe baskets are good for travel too.

Could have sold a couple "bush" pipes at the Dartmouth Powwow this weekend thanks to this basket, but I was there to demonstrate basketmaking and traditional materials prep.

In most cases, an impressive rack is overrated, more show than function. You can read that sentence anyway you see fit but my mind isn't in the gutter when I tell a lady she has a nice rack. I'm talking about her pipe rack. Oh, yeah, all the time I bump into ladies who have nice pipe racks. Welcome to New Orleans.

As someone who organizes everything in piles willy-nilly, I like the basket system. Personally I use the empty cigar box system, but they are similar.

I have a couple of pipe racks but my pipes usually end up outside the bounds of my racks. They are scattered all over the house where I rediscover them every time I clean my desk, reach for a fresh pair of pants in my closet, start the lawnmower, or open a teakettle to find out what's making all that noise when the water comes to a boil.

There is something to be said about a genius' disarray. Every day is full of pleasant surprises.



I've never thought to look in any of my tea pots for missing pipes... until now!
