First he made the solar light table. Then the Adirondack chair wine bottle holder. And now Thom has made this awesome pipe rack. It’s so cool how a simple project can breed so much creativity. I wonder what he will come up with next? Thom writes:
The pipe rack picnic table can be built the same way as the condiment table with a few minor adjustments. The two boards for the benches must be at least 2 1/4″ wide to allow for the keyhole slots that the bowl of the pipe sits in. The keyhole slots can be made by drilling two holes with a 7/8″ spade bit set 7/8″ apart from each other at center. You can then use a router to clean up the oval and an ogee bit to fancy up the edges. The table itself can be made from (3) 2″ wide pieces or one 6″ piece. The slots on the table in which the stems of the pipes fit should be aligned with the keyhole slots on the benches. These stem slots should be made by drilling holes using a 3/4″ set 3/8″ in from the edge and then again cleaned up with a router. Make sure to have table legs with no greater an angle of 30° to ensure that the pipes sit up nicely. Happy building!
