nowadays very popular expression "non-standard" approach - we take a thing designed for something one, and for another use.Take, for example, a water pipe.After all, it can do more than just deliver water.With its convenient size, and unlimited connections, pipes are perfect for designing anything from the curtains to the garden lattices.And, as our pergola covered with leaves, they can even be used as an architectural element.

Our furniture is about 1.5 meters wide, 1.2 meters in length and 2.3 meters in height.Structure arbor will constitute two side portions (segments A and B) and an upper part (sections C and B)
, with a diagonal (denoted as E), connecting them.

You can change the length of the arbor, changing the length of the segments C and E, and a length varying lengths V. D segments should be long enough to connect the T-shaped and L-shaped mounting with no space between them.If you, like us, are working with a 3/4 inch pipe, the segments D are about 38 millimeters long.We recommend that you do the segments and at least 1.2 meters in length to provide a sufficient height design.

table segments

Cut a piece of pipe in the table.To speed up the process, we used the first segment of each type to measure them remaining the same length.

Segment Number Length 8
A 1.2 m
B 6
C 1.2 m 0.9 m 2
D 8 38 mm
E 4 0.45 m

Working on a flat surface, glue the first side baseusing two segment A and two segments in each;connect them with the T-fitting.Glue on two segments D to the T-fitting on top of each support.Next, glue the top, using four T-shaped connection, two segments B and C. Add the two lengths of the four remaining segment D to the outer ends of the T-fitting at the top.Allow the glue to dry.

To complete the assembly of the arbor, paste the 45-degree L-shaped connection to each segment and position D, as shown in the figure.Connect the side parts with the top with four segments E, gluing them to the L-shaped connection.
