This is a very clever solution, thanks for sharing it!

One question though: Is that a bowl of coffee beans sitting on your workbench?

Lol firstly thank you, and yes it is, my wife bought be a big long hobbit style pipe (church warden) which I occasionally smoke in the garage but that style pipe has a liability in that it can't be set down without tipping over. So I use the bowl of coffee bean to cradle the pipe and keep it up right. Plus it smells nice to boot :)
