And so....the steampunk spice rack was born.
Step 1: Cut and File Copper Pipe.
Then, use a file to clean up the edges and get rid of any sharp ends.
Step 2: Retrieve Other Necessary Items.
Step 3: ASSEMBLE!
The original design had only one row and could only hold 6 tubes, but I wanted more spices in the rack, so we expanded it. To add another row, simply cut 6 more 1.5-inch pieces of copper pipe and get 6 more copper T pieces.
Our spice rack seems pretty sturdy, but in the case that yours is wobbly, you could weld or glue the pieces together to make it more solid.
Step 4: Add Spice.
We had a couple of test tubes lying around, and more are currently in the mail to complete the spice rack. I found some cheap test tubes on Amazon, and the corks can be found at craft stores.
