When stationery designer Fiona Richards needed to expand her studio to include a dedicated shipping space, she had a simple, stylish, custom table made using an ever-versatile system of plumbing pipes.

The 8-foot table was built with cast iron pipes and fittings, custom-cut at her local plumbing supply shop, and a sheet of rough lumber from the lumber yard, sanded and varnished to a smooth surface. This is definitely a work table that can take a beating, yet still look good as it ages.

If you love to DIY, Richards has posted the table plans online for anyone else that wants to build a table like hers!
