DIY Home Office Made From Metal Pipes

If you're fond of an industrial aesthetic and are up for some DIY construction, you might want to consider putting together one of these custom desk/shelving units made from aluminum piping, pipe fittings, and laminate boards...

Simplified Building Concepts: this custom computer desk and shelf was built with Kee Lite pipe fittings and pipe. The shelves and desk top were made from a pressed laminate and cut to fit into the desk outline.

The desk hides a pair of additional surface features: a swing out lap desk surface, alongside a fold out surface which nearly doubles the usable desk space, complete with a monitor wall mount. If you're interested in piecing together a similar setup, Simplified Building has listed the exact parts and quantity for DIY.

Similarly, a stairway shelving and TV entertainment center was fashioned from floor to ceiling inside an upstairs office.

This is a home entertainment center and shelving for dvds and cds also serving as a railing for the basement stairs all made with recycled aluminum 1 inch electrical pipes cleaned and polish. The tv and speaker supports are fixed with U bolts. The ceiling was re-enforced with 2x6 before the gypsum was installed.

No parts list for this one, but you can see further description/photos over at Space Saving Stairway Shelving and TV Mounting System.
