Here’s some creative DIY furniture that caught my eye at the Maker Faire this year. These are DIY copper pipe coffee table and other furniture.
You know they use a copper bracelet in golf to relieve arthritis pains? Well, having copper furniture so you get some copper on you everyday might not be such a bad idea.
My friend is a plumber who specializes in copper-repiping over at Daly City, perhaps I might go ask him for some free copper pipes so I can make one too.
Copper pipe makes interesting & beautiful furniture, especially if you throw in some math! This year I started making Fractal Furniture using copper pipes. My first project was a Hilbert Curve coffee table. A Hilbert Curve is one of a class of space-filling curves, essentially a line folded in on itself at multiple levels in a way that fills the entire plane if you go an infinite number of levels down. Of course, you can’t buy infinitesimally-sized copper pipes for a finite amount of money, so the table only goes to level 4.
