Copper Pipe Clothes Rail
Looking for an extra place to hang your clothes? Or perhaps you don't even have hanging space. This stylish copper clothes rail is super quick and easy to make and looks good too!
You will find all the supplies needed for this project at your local Builders Warehouse or plumbers supply store.
YOU WILL NEED:
- 1 of 250mm length
- 3 of 100mm length
4 copper elbows | 2 copper 'T' fittings, | 2 copper end caps
Acetone or metal polish
Gloves and safety glasses
Rags or old towel
Epoxy or copper adhesive
Jigsaw plus steel blade or multifunction tool
1. Measure and mark the pieces required and then cut to length with a jigsaw and steel cutting blade or multifunction cutter. DO clamp the pipe to your workbench and wear the appropriate safety gear.
2. Clean the cut lengths of pipe with metal polish or acetone. Polish until you bring out the natural shimmer and shine of the copper pipe.
3. Use adhesive to secure all the individual components together, starting with the elbows...
GOOD TO KNOW: Work quickly when joining the sections together as the adhesive dries fast. Have a rag on hand to wipe off any excess adhesive that oozes out of the joins.
... and ending with the 'T' fittings to complete the assembly. Now you can place the clothes hanger where you need it and hang up your clothes.
