When I discovered I needed a new faucet for my laundry room sink I didnt want to choose between a cheap faucet that will only last a few years and an expensive one. I decided to build my own.
The faucet is made from 1/2" copper pipe and solder fittings, two ball valves, and two 3/8 threaded fittings.
The specific pipe lengths, configuration, and installation will vary based on your needs and tastes so I leave that for each person to determine what will work best in their situation.
Step 1: Tools and Materials
Drill and drill bits
Heat resistant gloves (not pictured)
Wire pipe brush
Brush (for applying flux)
Wooden blocks (One 8 in length the other 3-1/2 in)
Bolts of greater length than the width of the block
All pipe materials have 1/2" solder joints:
2 Ball valves
3 90 degree elbows (I bought extra in case of problems with soldering)
2 3/8 threaded converters for attaching supply hoses
1 3/8 pipe thread to 3/4 hose thread adapter
