    Showing off my galvanised pipe stand

    Alright so I'm in social housing here in the UK and while I'm allowed to decorate, hang shelves, generally get away with a lot more than I could in a private rental, I'm pretty sure they'd have something to say about me hanging from the walls.. not to mention it's a new-build apartment block anyway, and finding usable studs in here has been an actual nightmare.

    So I figured I could work with the "portable" pipe stand diagram from the Ultimate Hang... Our pipes are sold by the metre, so each of the main pipes are around 6-7" longer, but otherwise it's the same design. Went with 2" pipe, for aesthetics mostly, as the stand won't need to be moved - but that's resulted in a super sturdy beast of a stand. I had to remove the lampshade & bulb + a guitar holder from that left wall, so that I could tip it up onto its feet once it was constructed. it's not going anywhere!

    Top rail 2 x 2m
    Uprights 2m each
    Feet 4x 0.6m

    Waiting on a La Siesta Carolina, that's just a wee Vivere, in the pic.

    Hoping this will last a while, but as I saw circusfreak's stunning built-in hang setup the day after I ordered all these pipes, i already know what my next upgrade will look like, hahaha.

    Nice build! Very non-intrusive with the foot design and the high top rail. Well done!

    The pipe blended in so well that I thought it was part of the structure. Well done.

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, that it almost hugs the walls is a big part of why i chose this type of stand, but I'm still kinda surprised by how well it blends into the room. Glad to hear it'll hold up!

    Nice job! It really does blend in nice with the room.
