In this youtube video I make a Pipe/Wood shelf for shoes.

You can make this easily in a couple hours if you're motivated. All the tools you'll need are... drill, circular saw (I used miter saw in my video), and maybe some hand tools like a hammer and vice grips to move and tighten the pipes.

Step 1: Getting Started.

You'll need several 'tapered thread' plumbing pipes at different lengths. For my project I chose 10 1/2 in flanges. 14 1/2 in X 2 in pipe. 4 1/2 in X 4 in pipe. 4 1/2 in X 10 in pipe. 4 1/2 in elbows. 6 1/2 in 'T's '. 2 1/2 in caps.

WOOD. One 1X12X6. Two 1X4X8.

Stain (if desired).

Spray on Polyurethane.

3/4 in screws.

Step 2: Assemble!

Now all you have to do is assemble the pipes. Cut the wood to 2ft lengths and attach to flanges!

nice tutorial. excellent shelving unit.

It is important to note that you should spray polyurethane all over the finished product to protect the wood and to keep the metal from rusting.
