20 2-foot pipe segments
9 1-foot pipe segments
8 3-way corner connectors
4 4-way corner connectors
6 T connectors
3 4 ft by 1 ft pieces of plywood, PVC sheeting, or similar material
1. Place two 2-foot pipe segments in a straight line. Connect them together with a T connector. Repeat until you have 6 identical 4-foot segments.
2. Place two of these segments parallel to each other, with the open T connector opening facing the opposite segment. Connect the open T connector openings with a 1 foot pipe segment.
3. Place a 3-way corner connector on each end of both segments. The open connector openings should face upwards and toward the opposite segment. Connect the parallel openings with a 1 foot pipe segment.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3, using 4-way corner connectors instead of the 3-way corner connectors in Step 3.
6. Place the first rectangle created in Step 3 (the first time) on the workspace so that the connector openings face upward. Place a 2-foot piece of pipe in the upward openings.
7. Connect the rectangle created in Step 5 to the top of these upright pipes.
8. Place a 2-foot pipe in the remaining 4-way connector openings.
9. Place the rectangle created in Step 4 over the top of these upright pipes.
10. Glue a 4 ft by 1 ft piece of plywood or PVC sheeting over each shelf for a surface.
SUGGESTIONS & OPTIONS:
- Glue a 4 ft by 4 ft piece of shelf material to the back surface for a backboard.
- Glue 4 ft by 1 ft piece of the shelf material to the outer edges of the shelves to enclose them.
- Glue a 2 ft by 1 ft piece of material between the center pipes to create divided shelves or cubbies.
- Resize the plans by modifying the size of the pipes or by adding additional shelves.
