As making Christmas gifts is the thought in many minds at this season of the year, a pipe rack is offered as a suggestion to those readers who may have relatives or friends who are smokers. This rack is simple in design but possesses one point of merit Sacking in most of them, and that is a shelf wide enough to hold the tobacco jar, match safe, etc., thus bringing all the smoking articles together in one place.
The shape and dimensions of the ends and pipe shelf are shown in the drawings. The upper shelf is 16 1/4 in. long and 51/2 in. wide. If made in bass or pine it may be decorated by pyrography, or made of white wood, maple or mahogany, as desired.
