DIY Steel Pipe Table
Making furniture out of industrial materials and salvaged or repurposed items is a hot decorating trend, and these creations can command high prices.
Our table cost a total of $207 to build, with the pipes and fittings costing between $3 and $12 each.
Metal and timber are the hallmarks of this style, so threaded steel pipes make an ideal frame for a coffee table, as they’re easy to assemble.
Calculate the number of pieces needed and their lengths, then use connectors to assemble the frame. Spray the frame with paint and attach a plywood top. You can leave this raw or apply a clear varnish.
BUDGET TIP Plywood is the best choice for the top as it’s more affordable than timber panels.
