Picture of Pipe Photo Frame
Picture 040.jpg
A steampunk photo frame made out of copper tube, elbows, T's and brass connectors.
Because I live in Europe and all the hardware is in cm/mm I won't use the "inch" standard, but this project can be made in different copper and fitting sizes ( as long as they all fit together).

Dunno, i kind of like the oxidized aspect.
That stand looks very smooth.
