Gas Pipe Wall Shelf

By Robert Robillard on How To

Gas Pipe Wall Shelf

I again used the temporary shelf to hold the “weight” of the shelf unit while I focused on the fasteners and mounting application. I used care not to over tighten or place too much torque on the fasteners to avoid cracking the tile.

Fastening Tip:

Use a level on the wood shelving and on the pipes [magnetic torpedo level works great] to ensure everything is square and level.

Shim your temporary shelf with wood shingles as needed to achieve level. Alternatively you can have someone hold the shelf and you can mark and install one fastener and then use that fastener and a level and have your helper pivot the shelf unit until its level. [Harder to do] Install a second fastener to hold the level position, and then install the rest of the fasteners.

We then used an artists brush to paint the screw heads black.



Creating a gas pipe wall shelf or anything with gas pipe, can be a rewarding DIY project. Add some recycled wood, with some history, and the result is a gorgeous custom shelving unit, better than any store bought shelf and a great conversational piece.
