    Supplies

    * ¾-inch copper pipe

    * 12 ¾-inch copper tees

    * 4 ¾-inch copper tube caps (type C)

    * Tubing cutter (or ask your hardware provider if they will cut your pipe for you!)

    * Epoxy glue

    * Clear sealant

    * Scouring pad

    Instructions

    # Rub a scouring pad along the pipes to remove any printing.

    # Use a tubing cutter to cut pipes. You'll need 6 17-inch pieces, 2 12-inch pieces, and 14 8-inch pieces.

    # Spray a clear coat on all the copper materials to prevent any oxidizing.

    # Put a little epoxy glue on the tubes before inserting them into the copper tees.

    # Lay everything out in a ladder shape, using the 17-inch pieces for the rungs, the 8-inch pieces for the rails, and the 12-inch pieces for the bottom rails.

    # Before putting the cup caps on the bottom and top rails, apply a little epoxy glue to the tubes so that the caps will stay put.

    # Check that all your joints are strong before stacking them with towels, throws, accessories, or decor.
