Description

Build a bunkbed in the morning and a water blaster in the afternoon, with PVC and Pipe Engineer, even advanced projects are easy with the right know-how! 

PVC and iron pipes used to be hidden deep inside the crawlspaces in your house, serving purely utilitarian needs. But not anymore! DIY with PVC and iron piping has caught on with homeowners and earned a place in every room of the house (and the backyard too)!

The 18 projects in PVC and Pipe Engineer range from wine racks to bedframes, showerheads to bike trailers. Best of all, they can all be made with parts you’ll find at your local hardware store. You'll be surprised at how easily even advanced projects go together once you learn the basics of cutting and joining iron pipe and PVC.

Whether you're building a super-powered water blaster, a minimalist modern chandelier, or even a simple candle holder, the illustrated how-to steps in PVC and Pipe Engineer will show even first-time DIY-ers how to build projects they're proud of.

The author

Jordan Bunker is a technical editor at Maker and is always actively involved in the fabrication, design, and documentation of all things mechanical and electronic. In his words, "My desire is to help more people learn to make more things, and more often. The world needs more artists and engineers, and I aim to help people find those roles within themselves. I helped start several non-profit organizations that help thousands of Makers across North America. I have taught classes on electronics, written about forgotten technologies, and given talks at several universities and design schools. I also dabble in expediting the spread of academic research through DIY projects."
