Create a handy storage unit for your garden or home with a striking combination of wood and metal.
- 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
- wood filler
- drill and concrete drill bit
- 3mm + 6mm drill bits
- spirit level
- 10mm socket (to fix Rawlbolts)
- measuring tape
Using a sharp pencil, mark the centre of the caps
Drill the end caps by securing it in a vice and begin with a 3mm drill bit then change to the 6mm drill bit.
Using a spirit level, mark the wall where the top two end caps will be and drill holes for the Rawlbolts.
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.
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.
Now install the shelves.
