Other Supplies:

How To

Step 1

Drilling Into PIpes

Stage 1
  • Take 8 of the 24” Black Pipe (584-240PE30HC) and drill three holes into each. Make sure to space them apart evenly.
  • You can use an Offset Flange (689-904HC) for each pipe to avoid drilling through pipe.

Step 2

Building Legs

Stage 2
  • Take a 6’ pipe (584-720PE30HC) and cap the top with an Elbow (682-504HC)
  • Slide three Single Socket Tees (680-104HC) on the pipe, making sure all the set screws are facing the same direction, then cap the bottom with a Flange (683-104HC).
  • Adjust heights according to desired shelf height, make sure the bottom inserts of all the Single Socket Tees (680-104HC) are facing the same direction then tighten set screws.
  • Create another one and mirror it to the first leg.

Step 3

Building Shelf Supports

Stage 3
  • Take 8 24” (584-240PE30HC) pipe and and slide them into the open ends of each Single Socket Tee (680-104HC) then tighten set screws.
  • Cap each 24” (584-240PE30HC) pipe of with a Flange (683-104HC) then tighten set screws.

Step 4

Installing Shlef Supports

Stage 4
  • Place Flanges (683-104HC) attached to the legs against the wall at the desired lenfth and mark the screw Flange (683-104HC) holes.
  • For easiest installation, remove Flanges (673-104HC) and install them into area where holes are marked using wood screws.
  • It would be preferable to install the Flanges (683-104HC) directly into the studs to reduce the chance of failure.
  • Slide the open ends of pipes into open ends of flanges then tighten set screws.

Step 5

Installing Shelves

Stage 5
  • Use wood screws to go through the holes you drilled in the pipe and into the wood pieces.
  • Make sure the screws are not too long but long enought to go through the pipe and into the wood.
  • If you decided to use the Offset Flanges (689-904HC) all you will need to do is go through the screw hole and into the wood. No drilling required.
