Original shelves of metal pipes with their own hands
We have already considered how to makemetal pipes and accessories table lamp, floor lamp and even a bed with a sofa. Now came the turn of the metal shelves, which are also suitable for premises in the style of Loft or the like. The following materials and tools are needed for production:
- Flanges for fixing the pipe to the wall 2pcs. Preferably metal and without chrome or other bright coating.
- Threaded fittings.
- Metal tube pieces.
- Dowels for fixing the shelf to the wall.
- Tool for threading on pipes.
The number and size of pipes must be calculated individually, depending on the required dimensions of the shelf (length, width, distance from the wall). The assembly of the shelf is very simple. First, it is attached to the dowels or simply by screws (depending on which wall) the flange. Next, a short pipe is wound on it, a fitting and a long pipe on the fitting. The process is repeated until the required shelf height is reached. After the lower part of the structure is attached to the wall by analogy with the top. In principle, such an original shelf can be made of plastic pipes. But it already will be not that.
