Its all part of my shelving/desk unit. It is made out of 1-1/2" galvanized pipe and 2" x 16" poplar shelves.
Niiiiice! Wow, that office space looks really awesome! I'm actually in the middle of a desk project that also uses iron pipes and 2" thick boards and I noticed them in your pic, so that's why I asked. I live in a small apt, so mine's on a way smaller scale. Lots of props on that, though. How did you join the pipes to the boards? I've seen flanges online, but I see that you haven't.
The boards have holes drilled and slipped onto the pipes and are just resting on the elbow joints on the front. A pipe goes back off the Tee and has an elbow pointing up on the back which puts it at the same level. So the board rests on the two Tees in front and the two elbows in the back.
Whoa simple and nice design! You must have some crazy drill to make a hole that big. Iron pipes, esp galvanized, are not cheap. Thanks for sharing that info though!
No way I could of made it myself. I have a handyman that has done stuff for us for years. So I designed it and he built it. It was a big project for sure. And yea there was a lot of complaining about stuff like "drilling these holes is hard". Apparently poplar is really tough stuff.
Nice thing is it appears to be pretty water proof. I spill on it all the time and just wipe it up with a towel with no water spots or damage.
