I have loved all of the industrial pipe furniture that I have seen all over the internet, and knew that I had to make one for our home. I finally got a chance to do this, and came up with a design that would accommodate our "live edge" table top.
Nothing I saw online was "perfect" for me, so I quickly came up with a crude drawing of what I was wanting, and then added in some pipe dimensions that I thought would work. I took this drawing to Lowe's and started piecing it together in their galvanized pipe aisle. I am sure I looked the site talking to myself and laying it out like a puzzle.
The pipes were pretty easy to work with, just don't tighten them all the way until you are sure everything is level and how you want it. I didn't listen to my own advice and had the dickens of a time trying to undo the 4" pieces on the side. Tip: Since they don't fully screw in all the way and you will see some "threads" on the pipe, you may need to alter your measurements a tad to fit your tabletop.
