Intro: Plumbing Pipe/Wood Shelf. (VIDEO)

Link to YouTube video if you can't view by clicking the thumbnail...

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!

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.

Awesome shelving unit! It would be great to see some more step-by-step photos with more detailed instructions. I think there are a lot of people who would love to make this!
