Create a handy storage unit for your garden or home with a striking combination of wood and metal.

Materials you will need:

  • assorted galvanised pipe fittings:
    • 4 x end caps
    • 4 x elbows
    • 6 x 300mm stand pipes (threaded on both ends)
  • 4 x 6mm Rawlbolts
  • planks of your chosen width and length
  • sandpaper
  • wood filler
  • paint
  • paintbrush
  • drill and concrete drill bit
  • 3mm + 6mm drill bits
  • spirit level
  • 10mm socket (to fix Rawlbolts)
  • pencil
  • measuring tape
  • vice

Step 1

Using a sharp pencil, mark the centre of the caps

Step 2

Drill the end caps by securing it in a vice and begin with a 3mm drill bit then change to the 6mm drill bit.

Step 3

Using a spirit level, mark the wall where the top two end caps will be and drill holes for the Rawlbolts.

Step 4

Secure the end caps to the wall with the Rawlbolts. Make two shelf supports by joining three stand pipes with two elbows in-between. Turn the top pipe of each support into an end cap.

Step 5

Mark the bottom two caps and drill and fix them with Rawlbolts as for the top end caps, but leave them a little bit loose as you will need a bit of leeway when you turn the end cap into the bottom pipe.

Step 6

Now install the shelves.
