Top tip: Use a small dab of ketchup and a cloth to clean away any fin­ger­prints from the cop­per pipes for a pro­fes­sional fin­ish.

LEn­sure you use Enough glue to hold the pipes to­gether se­curely and take care to wipe away any Ex­cess to avoid mark­ing the cop­per

Take the piece of wood for the table­top and make sure it mea­sures 35 x 35cm (we had ours cut to size at B&Q, but you could also cut by hand). Paint with a coat of chalk paint and leave to dry be­fore adding a sec­ond coat. Ap­ply a layer of fur­ni­ture wax over the top for ex­tra pro­tec­tion, if de­sired.

12Mea­sure and cut the pipes to the fol­low­ing lengths: 4 x 50cm, 2 x 30cm, 8 x 15cm. Use a clamp to hold the pipes while cut­ting them. Slot the pipes into place (im­age 3) with four 50cm lengths as the legs, join­ing onto a 15cm pipe at each end and a 30cm bar along the mid­dle, both at the top and bot­tom. Trim the pipes if any are too long once slot­ted into the el­bows and tees. Use Go­rilla Glue (fol­low in­struc­tions on the bot­tle) in­side each el­bow and tee to stick the pipes in place. Hold or clamp to se­cure and leave to dry thor­oughly be­fore mov­ing. At­tach the table­top us­ing pipe clips and screws.**
