Introduction: Fire Hydrant Table
Fire hydrant fake from pvc pipes
Step 1: Cut and Assemble
A sewage pipe with a diameter of 110 mm was shortened to the length of 77 cm. At a height of 60 cm, two opposite circular "holes" with a diameter of 70 mm were made. A third hole was drilled 47 cm from the front into the pipe, or rather sawn, because the holes were made with the hole saw.
Step 2: The First Woodwork Is Coming Up
The 110er plastic raw was supposed to stand on a wooden plate about 30 cm in diameter. A 40 mm thick multiplex plate was used for this purpose. Centered on this plate, a second circular wooden plate with a diameter of the inner dimension of the tube was sized and screwed. This part is used to attach the "leg". Then the plastic straw was The short 70 mm tubes are then shortened to the length of about 20 cm and pushed into the existing holes of the main tube. The pipes fit millimeter accurate in the statement, are attached with a model adhesive and sit after the drying out of the adhesive "bomb-proof" in the leg.
: All 3 short tubes are provided with lids onto which a 20 mm thick and 110 mm diameter wooden disc is glued and screwed. The screwing is done before applying the lid, because so the wooden disc can be screwed from the inside. A wooden hexagon screw is now glued to these wooden discs. It is of course only hinted at.
A 40 mm thick wooden disc is also screwed onto the upper opening of the tube. For this purpose, the same principle as for the foot plate is used again. This wooden disc should serve for fastening the table top.
Step 3: Tableplate, Paint and Final Detailing
After completion of this work, a short grinding of the plastic pipes, so that the applied paint better adheres.
The whole structure is then painted with black paint in satin matt.
The table top has a size of 40 cm in diameter. It was screwed from above onto the wood disk of the main pipe with 4 countersunk Spax screws. The four small screw holes were closed with wood cement and sanded.
Picture 2 and 4: Attaching so-called or even indicated security chains. The chains were cut to a length of 20 cm and the end members were opened with a pair of pliers. The ends were then inserted into 6 mm drill holes and glued together.
Picture 3. Of course, the hydrant's white number was only applied because it was a bit naked around the bottom. Was simply applied with a brush.
