How To

Stage 1

Building Legs

  • Start with attaching the legs.
  • Take x4 18” pipes and slide them into the vertical holes of x4 Side Outlet Elbows (682-804HC) then tighten set screws.

Stage 2

Attaching Legs

  • Take x4 36” pipes and attach them to the open horizontal holes of the Side Outlet Elbows (682-804HC) to create a square then tighten set screws.

Stage 3

Prepping Horizontal Pipes

  • Take x5 36” pipes. Attach x3 Double Tab Offset Flanges (689-804HC) to one pipe, Two Offset Flanges (689-904HC) to two pipes and x1 Single Socket Tee (680-104HC) to two pipes
  • Center these appropriately then tighten set screws.

Stage 4

Attaching Vetical Pipes

  • This step involves building another square on the top except there is a middle pipe and all the pipes have fittings.
  • The pipe with x3 Double Tab Offset Flanges (689-804HC) is the middle pipe.
  • You will want the pipes with the Single Socket Tee (680-104HC) across from each other and the pipes with the Offset Flanges (689-904HC) across from each other.
  • Place the Side Outlet Elbows (682-804HC) on each vertical pipe then tighten set screws.
  • Build the top like you did before and match what you see in above line art.
  • Build a total of two bases for the table.

Stage 5

Attaching Wood Top

  • Use wood screws to attach the Double Tab Offset Flanges (689-804HC) and the Offset Flanges (689-904HC) to the wood piece.
  • Attach a box to each side of the wood piece.
