I recently shared a picture of pipe shelving my husband made me for Christmas. I received a handful of comments from people asking how he constructed ours. I decided to write up a brief post sharing how it’s done.
NOTE: We did not take pictures during the process so hopefully the “after” pictures give you all an idea of how it’s done.
Supplies Needed (for 3 shelves):
- 3 – Shelves cut to 32 inches long, 10 inches wide
- 4 – Gas pipe flanges (black)
- 6 – Couplings (black, we used 3/4 inch)
- 4 – Gas pipe elbows (black)
- 4 – 10 inch Gas pipes (black, we used 3/4 inch)
- 8 – 4 inch Gas pipes (black, we used 3/4 inch)
- Wood stain of your choice (optional, we used dark walnut)
- Paddle Bit (use appropriate paddle bit based on thickness of gas pipe)
- Sheetrock Anchors
- Sheetrock Screws
- Optional : Liquid nail
- Drill a hole in each end of shelf (roughly 2 inches in) using drill and paddlebit.
- Stain each shelf (optional).
- Piece together the flanges, gas piping, elbows, and couplings to construct your shelves.
- Hang shelf using sheetrock anchors and screws.
- Optional: Use liquid nail to secure shelf to pipe around each hole.
Feel free to leave ask questions or leave comments!
Best of luck!
