We need shelving for our dining room, so I searched for ideas. Iron pipe and Maple sounded like a great solution. I found some really nice maple with bug holes that ended up creating a great pattern. After installing and utilizing the space, this worked out to be a great use of space, looks great and cost less then $150.

It’s actually Ambrosia Maple. There is a local guy who mills locally downed trees in the area. Metro Hardwoods in Cleveland.

Cool looking shelves! Unique and creative design on the pipes and the maple has very nice holes and figures. Like it. Great job!
