I know I say it all the time, but this project is SO simple guys.

Here is what you’ll need to make your own:

24’ of 3/4” copper pipe
(12) copper elbows
(12) copper T’s
(6) copper straps
(1) 2×4’ sheet of plywood (it comes precut in this size at Home Depot!)
(1) grommet kit
Clear Epoxy
13’ of cotton belting
Pipe Cutter

Cut your belting to 24” and follow the instructions on the video to set your grommets.

Once you have your belting ready and your copper cut its time to start assembly.

This is how your pieces will fit together:

Like I said in the video, I always dry fit everything, just to make sure that it looks the way I want. Once you’ve done that you can start epoxying things together (just remember to add your slings as you are assembling!)

To finish the top of the table I used my favorite clear coat. Varathane’s Triple Thick.

Spread a nice thick coat and let it dry!

Then attach your table top to the base with pipe straps.
