hello guys, I was just looking on ebay looking for a shelf and then i thought perhaps I can build something. Your video just sparked something in me and I'm going to buy some tools.

Brandon St. Randy says:

Just built this piece over the weekend. I looks great. I used a Jacobean stain and 10" pipes. However, don't let this video fool you! The assembly is trickier than it looks and also since the pipes and flanges are threaded, they will not be totally flushed to the middle or top boards when you mount them. Mine are at a very slight angle.

Ally Davis says:

How do you avoid drilling your screws into the previous screws?

Isaac Ben David says:

that was a great video! thank you so much. i can't wait to try it myself.

Abigail Gentry says:

Just wondering if you could make this one shelf higher? Would it be steady or top heavy?

MIchael Rigby says:

If more people would use the flange,I wouldn't roam so much.

Patrick Fosgate says:

What could I use for feet besides casters?

ttglass45 says:

I loved it. I was thinking though using the same build but putting pipes on the top and bottom with 90’s on them and securing the to a wall with heavy duty wall mounts, I was wandering if that would work?????

Robert Hardt says:

Why would you drill while stacked when you could easily mark the holes with a pencil, take the top shelf off first and drill straight holes?

Israel Macias says:

Pretty feet

F Con says:

Nice build. I wonder if there's a way to make it less permanent, such as possibly stripping the threads so the pipe can just push into the flanges and thus can be taken out layer by layer, yet sturdy enough to stay in tact in a closet situation.

HDnayrb says:

Oddly hilarious watching someone beat up new timber to make it seem distressed or used. think about it

Jessica Childress says:

I did this and it was super easy, and turned out awesome, but be warned it is somewhat pricey – flanges and pipe aren't very cheap. I didn't like the wheel idea for the bottom, so I used (4) 3" pipes on the bottom corners and used flanges for feet (which added to the cost). I bought flanges on Amazon that were half the price as in store and used 10" pipe from Home Depot (I needed more space between shelves than 8"). The pipe was about the same price online. I ordered the 3/4" flanges online before I went to look at the pipe in store, and in my opinion, the project would have turned out looking better with 1" flanges/pipe…but it still turned out good with the 3/4". I used a 2x12x12 board of Douglas Fir from Home Depot that I had cut into 3 pieces and stained with Danish Oil. Altogether the total cost was around $100.

And also remember to smile at the camera before finishing every step xD

Johnny Clean says:

Well done! 😀 I like the old industrial pipe look with the thick pieces of rustic timber. Great tutorial and cute host. 😊👍

Patt1523 says:

Does somebody know which kind of wood are the boards?

Jerome Jackson says:

I'm in the process of making these now. Curious what type of wood you'd suggest? I'm using an old piece of 2×12 cedar left behind by some contractors. I will say, i'm a little nervous about nail alignment when screwing in the flanges on top and bottom of same board? I'll have to let you know how it works out.
