Introduction: Concrete and Copper Pipe Holder

Steph's been wanting to make another concrete project and came up with an idea for using copper pipe to make a holder for pens/markers for her desk. Her desk is very rustic industrial looking so a concrete and copper pipe holder is a perfect addition to her desk. By the way, copper pipe ended up being way easier to cut than either of us realized!

Step 1: Watch the Video

Step 2: Gather Materials

  • Concrete (Home Depot)
  • 1/2" copper pipe (Home Depot)
  • 1/2" PVC caps (optional) (Home Depot)
  • Plastic bottles (we used pure leaf tea bottles)
  • Aluminum tape (optional) (Amazon)
  • Tube cutter (Amazon)
  • Mallet
  • Mixing bowl/spoon
  • Safety gear: gloves, mask, safety glasses

Step 3: Cut Plastic Mold to Size

Step 4: Cut Pipe and Add Caps

Cap pipe with pvc caps or tape. This will protect the inside pipes from concrete while curing.

Step 5: Mix Concrete and Add Pipes

Step 6: Wait 20 Hours and Remove Mold

We made a couple of versions. The left one was made with RapidSet cement.

Step 7: Done!

Sometimes it's fun to do a project that doesn't take a lot of time or effort. Small concrete projects are those projects for us!
