Step 1

Attach two hex nipples to a 300 mm pipe. This is the top crossbar.

Step 2

To make a leg secure two 150 mm pipes to either side of a T equal. Attach a round cap to one end. Repeat to make a second leg.

Step 3

Attach the legs you made in step 2 to the crossbar made in step 1. Make sure the open ends of the T equals face the same direction, 90° to the crossbar.

Step 4

Attach two 300 mm pipes to the T equals. You’ve now made one side panel. Repeat step 1 to 4 to make the second side panel. Secure the two unions to the 300 mm pipes. Use the unions to attach the two side panels together. Tighten with a wrench.

Step 5

Clean the galvanised pipes before spraying. Spray the framework with primer and let it dry. Then spray paint two coats of aqua, letting it dry between coats.

Step 6

Measure 73 cm on the pine plank. Make a mark across the plank using the combination square. Clamp the plank to the work surface and cut it with the jigsaw.

Step 7

Prime the plank with Supagrip. Let it dry. Then paint with two coats of Pearl Glo, letting the plank dry between coats.

Step 8

Attach the plank to the framework with the saddles and screws. Now display your handiwork where it can be admired.
