Live Edge Wood and Gas Pipe Shelf
I used expansion fasteners [70 lb capacity] and in order for these to work you need to ensure that you have marked your screw holes accurately and drilled precise holes. Having a helper is important, unless you use a support to hold the shelf while you work.
Tip: install all of the toggles and lightly tighten. Leave them slightly loose so you can adjust the unit and check the plumb and levels. Once you have the unit where you want it, tighten all of the fasteners. You can use a black marker or some paint to color the silver screw heads to match your pipe.
Old World Charm and Modern Look
Once installed this live edge and gas pipe shelf looks like it has always been there, yet the live edge gives it a modern artistic flair. Projects like this are fun, easy and cost effective. The materials for this project cost approximately $75.00. This industrial look craving is easily accomplished by assembling pre-threaded gas pipes and fittings like this starter kit online for $60.00. Industrial-Pipe-Table-Legs-Inch
