Step 1. Take the ruler and marker, and mark the following sections on your copper pipe: one 6-inch piece; four 4-inch pieces; and two 1-inch pieces.
Step 2. With the tubing cutter, cut each of the pieces.
Step 3. Start with a street elbows and one of the 4-inch copper pieces. Glue them together, and repeat with the other street elbow and another 4-inch copper piece.
Step 4. Glue and assemble the street elbow/4-inch pieces to the 6-inch copper piece. Set aside.
Step 5. Gather the remaining 4-inch copper pieces, two tees, and the 1-inch pieces.
Step 6. Attach the 4- and 1-inch pieces to the tees lengthwise.
Step 7. The 90-degree elbows will attach to the opposite end of the 4-inch copper pipes.
Step 8. Use the pipe caps to cover the ends of the 90-degree elbows and the 1-inch copper pieces.
Step 9. Attach the legs to the back with glue via the remaining opening in the tees and the ends of the 4-inch copper pieces.
