* 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
# 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.
