Sand and Stain

Sand the surfaces of all the wood pieces. Stain or paint the wood as desired. Allow the pieces to dry for four to six hours.

Attach Flanges

Starting with the bottom shelf, screw down each flange. Tip: Do not drive the screws in all the way. Leave a little room to level off the shelf when you attach the galvanized black pipes.

Attach Pipes

Attach the galvanized black pipes into the flanges on the bottom shelf. Tip: For the top flanges, attach them to the pipe first so it will be easier to screw them down to the second shelf.
