  2. I think the idea is that shelves are “floating” above the bar.

    One of the best hacks in a while, in my opinion. Very cool. I share the concern of some commenters that Lack is probably not up to the task longer term, but the crisp look of Lack combined with the rough look of the galvanized piping makes this sculpture uniqe.

    just a comment on my experience with LACK in bathrooms: depending on how humid your bathroom gets, the LACK covering will eventually begin to split at the edges and discolour slightly. Mine did this after about a 12 – 18 months.

    That said, they are so cheap you wouldn’t expect it to last forever.

    could do something similar with galvanized conduit pieces from home depot or similar. same look, and likely much cheaper.

    looks good, but given that lack is just cardboard internals, i’d be worried about the long term strength/stability of the shelf/bracket connection

  10. The fittings are galvanized, so it’s very water resistant. You’d probably have problems with mold before you ever had a problem with rust. It could also be done in aluminum.

    If you wanted to pull together a cost, you could put fittings and pipe in your cart on this site. It all depends on how tall you build it.
