>>What do you get when you purchase the plans?
You will download the 3 page plans in PDF format showing you how to build your own rack. Includes list of materials, measurements, instructions and a CAD illustration. You will be able to open the file and save and print it from your computer.
I have also recently included another 2 pages of additional information and resources to help you gather your materials and build your TowelMaid!
**You will NOT get any materials (pipes or fittings)

>>How do you get the plans?
Etsy will make the plans available to you to download as soon as payment is verified. They will notify you immediately via email.
You will download them from Etsy. **You will NOT be emailed or sent the plans.
(If you need them mailed or emailed, please contact me after you purchase and I'll get them right out to you.)

>>What do you need to build your own rack?
Our TowelMaid racks are built exclusively out of furniture grade PVC pipe. We STRONGLY recommend you also use furniture grade PVC pipe to ensure stability and aesthetics. If you use plumber's pvc pipe (found in home improvement stores) we are not confident you'll get positive results. We have not tried it ourselves.

We recommend that you check out the price and availability of furniture grade PVC before purchasing the plans (if you plan to use it) because it is more expensive and more difficult to find than plumbers PVC. I include links to online retailers in the Additional Information and Resource pages that you get after you buy the plans.

>>Just how much pipe do you need? Well, it depends on what length of pipe you order - but this should give you an idea:

If you purchase 5' long pipe, you will need to purchase approximately:
9 (5 foot long) pieces of 1 1/4 (sch 40) pipe
6 (5 foot long) pieces of 3/4 (sch 40) pipe

If you purchase 10' long pipe, you will need to purchase approximately:
4 (10 foot long) pieces of 1 1/4" pipe
2 (10 foot long) pieces of 3/4" pipe

4 - "3 way"
Since these "3 Way" fittings can be hard to find (they are not plumbing fittings so are not often found in most big box stores) we now offer them in our shop. Here is a link to the listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/129743911/furniture-grade-3-way-fitting-1-14?ref=shop_home_active
4 - 45 degree
2 - "Tee"
2 - "Ell"

>>You will also need a drill press or hand drill and the proper bit to drill the holes.
