    Birthday Gift

    I've been ogling these Savinelli cabinets for some time but the asking price would have sent me into 2019's budget
    but a good pipe friend sent me a photo asking me if I was interested and the price was ridiculously low.
    So I went to DW, reminded her of my upcoming birthday and showed her the photo.
    Now it holds 36 of my most prized Stanwells.

    Thanks very much.
    He's very interested and has already claimed it for himself by rubbing his fat head all over it, so I do keep an eye on him.
    If the cabinet is suddenly gone one morning, I know where.

    Thank you everybody for your kind words.

    Here is a photo of it closed and a nifty detail is that it is made of briarwood.

    Since I took the photos, I have got 4 new, prized Stanwells, so which ones to remove..?
    Decisions, decisions.

    This PAD thing never stops, does it..? I hope not.
