Make easy industrial pipe hooks
I’m still busy assessing how my boy is using his room.
What I thought would be a good place for a desk or table? I’m having second thoughts.
I think he needs a clothes hanging area more. As in, a bunch of hooks within an easy toss.
Maybe his clothes won’t land on the floor so often… a mom can dream, right?
So this little pipe dream (heh) came to mind!
This will be done so fast, you won’t have time to blink!
And with any luck, you won’t need to find time to clean either…
Here’s how to make easy industrial pipe hooks that look cool and are super strong too!

Make easy industrial pipe hooks
Pipe hook supplies:
pipe fittings – mine are 1/2″
cordless drill and screws
1. Cut wood plank to desired length, then lightly sand.
2. Screw together pipe fittings to create hooks.
Each pipe hook requires:
- A flange
- An elbow
- A straight pipe (mine measured 3″)
Simply screw them together to assemble.
3. Position where the pipe hooks are to sit.
In my case, I desired to make a long row of hooks to hang clothing.
4. Screw the pipe hooks onto the wood plank by attaching through the flange openings. So easy!
If you find your wood splitting, you may find it handy to pre-drill pilot holes first.
5. Mount the plank to the wall with screws.
- Attach plank with one screw in the middle.
- Place a construction level on top.
- Tap the plank until straight, then add more screws for stability.
If you wish to hang very heavy items, locate where your wall stud is first so you can attach at least one screw to that.
Or use wall anchors.
The finished pipe hooks
How cool does this look?!
These industrial pipe hooks are so easy to customize too! Whether you need only one hook or many, simply use the length of board desired.
Ideas to use pipe hooks for:
- towels indoors or out
- coat hooks
- in a laundry room
- workshop… and more!
As coat hooks in an entry
These industrial pipe hooks would make such a perfect mini entry coat hook area.
Add a crate with a clipboard, and you have a little grocery list station as well!
Say… I need that in my kitchen…
I love it when I inspire myself.
Pipe hooks sure do have a cool vibe!
Start buying pipe fittings, and you’ll soon be making industrial pipe hooks all over the house with them!
You can even use pipe fitting for tray handles!
Or pipe curtain rods!
Or do like me… and take them apart to build the next big idea…
And that’s the beauty of pipes… they are the coolest and most authentic industrial hardware around so why not stock and use (and re-use) them often?
Think you’ll make easy industrial pipe hooks somewhere after seeing how easy and cool they look?

I love this idea. Are these brand new pipe fittings? They aren’t as shiny as the ones I just purchased.
Hey Carlene, yes, they are new! But two finishes are generally found, silver or kind of a bronzed over look. Since my collection is mixed, so are my projects. haha
So glad to see you are putting your stuff out there. Even if it is not made by you, it looks great … Good Luck.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to steal your idea…love it! I always say I love small houses, but then I don’t have room for all the cool things
Nifty Schnifty! 🙂
I love how you put everything together. The box with clipboard, nails, plant on top is a great idea.
Thanks for sharing.
Very, very nice! I love industrial pieces, and this one looks easy to assemble.
Love this idea! I could Definitely use a few of these around my house!
Well Donna, once again I pinned one of your ideas to my brilliant folder, thank you for making me brighter ha!
Good morning, Donna
Another super cool idea!
You asked about the crack? My hubby says…in looking at the picture before you screwed the pieces in, it appears the crack was already there? Then you screwed two, what I call hooks next to each other into the crack which caused it to be a longer crack. Does this make sense?
Oh my… you are right, it was there from the start! Now I don’t feel like a TOTAL DIY failure… well, except for my choice of plank I suppose… haha
I have to say that when I saw the first picture of the pipe fittings put together, I was thinking “Calling all Teletubbies” which is a phrase in the Teletubbies show. You can see what I mean, if you care to watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzuDplTRzFU at about the 1:30 minute and again at about a minute later. Let’s not discuss how I know this at 60 years old.
Haha, oh now that’s funny!
What a cool idea! Love the pipe hangers. And you’re spot on as there are so many ways to use them. Maybe your wood split because right under the split the wood was missing a small area. It may have been compromised due to that. But as for me, me thinks it adds character.
This is so fun AND functional…love it! Now if only I thought this might help my own 14 year old boy! XO
