Iron Shelf


I am doing my kitchen in 40-50's vintage. Metal cabinets, painted floor, etc. I didn't know what to put above the stove and saw a picture of this shelf. I had to have it so here is my shelf. It is make out of black iron pipe and painted boards. Everyone loves it. I am making a microwave table with the same material to match.

Nice job! How are the shelves attached to the pipe?

I've seen some really nice, big shelving units online that people have made. It looks like a fun project.

They are not attached at all. They just nestle down against the neck(s) of the elbows and tees. The boards were cut to snuggly nestle in.

Also Barb
This shelf is totally adjustable in length and height by just the pieces you buy. The pipes come in all kinds of lengths from a couple inches to 10ft. If you don't mind me asking where in Michigan are you?

Thanks
Lynn

Dumpaday . com has a bunch of pictures of furniture, shelves, etc. made of pipes & wood.

I'm near Grand Rapids and the lake shore.
