What do I win?
Since your post demonstrates quick thinking and unusual competence in an uncommon situation, I'd say

With zip ties the pipe isn't fastened in place. Three clamps allows less movement. I'm going for no movement.

Just use a lot of zip ties. They're about two cents a piece.

Has the OP successfully rejected all good faith efforts to help?

Use [...] some tape. There. That's your solution. Good luck.
Okay, to be more specific, it's actually a 4' x 2.5' piece of wood that's part of the furniture in the middle of empty space; on which I want to securely attach a pipe without marring the furniture.

Tape would probably work to hold it in place, but if it were bumped into it would move. It needs to not move.

That should be all the info about the rig.

It's too hard to visualize a 2x4 in an open room?

There's only so many directions the force of zip ties could be applied to the pipe and wood -- so it would still move.

Yoyozit already said it in Post #13. This is one guy we won't be able to help. No only is he not willing to share all the information thinking it's not relevent, but he is also arrogant and sarcastic in his responses.

He is either a troll or someone who needs practice communicating.

Mr. Jordan, you are getting sucked into this game.

The game is set up so that you fail. The OP holds all the cards.

And even if you came up with a solution, the OP always has the option of saying, "I'm not going to spend 10 cents [50 cents] [$1.00] to fix this thing!"
I had hardware store customers like that. And if I somehow came up with solutions that could not credibly be dismissed, brilliant solutions, the guy just didn't say anything.

This isn't a psych forum, but I think the OP has an ulterior motive of which he himself may be only dimly aware of. The real work on this thread is for the OP to figure out what it is.

If you can get a copy of "Games People Play," I recommend reading it. It's way old, but nothing has changed since it was written.

I knew he was playing head games. I just wanted to see what he would say to my answer.

I'll float a theory...

The pipe is hooked to the home' sanitary plumbing system and serves as a drain into which good, logical ideas are inserted so they can run downhill with the effluent. The convenience of having such a drain close to his chair or desk has prompted the OP to wish to secure said pipe without marring said furniture.

You really don't want to know. Besides that, I've already asked those that know what it's for and they didn't toss out many ideas. I'm looking for ideas from the hardware specialists since, while they don't know precisely what it's for, they know of various un-thought of tools/gadgets/hardware that can be used to come up with various rigs.

Adhesive on the wood probably isn't a dreadful thing... This sounds like a decent idea; I just don't believe there's enough contact between the wood and pipe for enough velcro to connect... do you? It'd only be about 1 inch (along the circumference of the pipe) of velcro. Maybe even stronger types of velcro could be applied as well. This might work... now what did I do with my spare industrial strength velcro...

Well from seeing how often the few of you post; you seem to be the resident all-day posters. I'm not really interested in hearing your irrelevant answers and cynicism. Not to mention that all-dayers have really low-quality posts.

You know..... this might be a usable idea sometime as I was wondering about certain nuisances. Though I'm not sure how practical it would be.
