All the infographics on our kitchen and desk kits include measurements of just the pipe by itself.
Can a glass tabletop be used?
Yes, but rubber bumpers should be placed in the holes of the top flanges to prevent sliding or scratching.
How to make a desk customization?
Our desks can be extended with 1/2in pipe and an additional coupling but adding a support leg is difficult to connect.
What would you recommend for tables and desks over 5 feet wide?
It’s recommended to build an H leg like our H desk kit with a 3/4 in pipe to meet your specs.
Can you customize a kit for me?
Kits cannot be customized. You can buy extra pipe to modify it but we do not remove pieces from the kits we currently have.
What size fittings do the desk kits use?
3/4in for the legs and 1/2in for the crossbars.
What height is the crossbar pipe on the H and X style desk leg kits?
I've been looking at your desk kits. I need a desk that's about 65 inches, would this support that?
All of our desks would support that size and weight, but you might want to extend it a little.
Can I use a larger desk top size?
Any of our desks can support table tops up to 6ft without modification. Sizes larger than six feet should have additional legs added for support and room to move around.

You can use 12in flange legs to build a bookshelf like this.
Do you do custom length pipe?
We currently do not do custom cut length, but you can take the pipe to any hardware store and they can usually cut and thread pipe.
Can the H-model be extended to countertop height (36”)?
Yes, Change the bottom legs from 8in to 16in (or 14in if your tabletop is 2in thick)
I’m looking for legs at least 48 inches or so for a sofa/bar table, do you sell that?
Legs with 36in pipe at the top, a tee, and then 10in at the bottom should be just about 48 inches.
I want a specific length for the table legs, do you have that in a kit?
Using our single pipe and fittings you can make any kit possible with pipe.
Cleaning and Sealing
What can I use to clean the pipe and fittings?
We recommend using cleaning wipes or simply rub them with a dry or damp cloth. Then seal with a polyurethane spray as soon as possible. Soap and water can be used on the pipe but not the fittings.
Do you take care of the sealing of the pipes first?
The pipe and fittings are coated in a rust preventative grease. They can be wiped down or cleaned and then sprayed with polyurethane to seal. You can use them as is, but they might get you dirty. Seal them before putting the kit together but be careful to not cake it on the threads.
What kind of spray to use when sealing pipe?
We recommend Rustoleum polyurethane semi-gloss for the best natural finish.
Does Minwax for woodwork for pipes too?
Yes, it does!
Can the pipe and fittings be cleaned with brake fluid?
Basic cleaning wipes and then sealing them will work just fine. Fittings you can give a rough rubbing with a clean washcloth and some water or sprayed with a cleaning solution and then seal right after.

What is the weight limit for pipes?
This is an industrial produced schedule 40 welded steel. 1/2in pipe legs can easily hold several hundred lbs. The larger pipe is more stable because of the larger flange size.
What is the external diameter of the 1/2in pipe?
.62 in is the external diameter.
Are pipes and flanges the same color?
The pipes are schedule 40 steel and the fittings are Cast iron. The fittings tend to be greyer. There is a small color difference. You can clean and seal a kit with any color enamel spray paint though.
