PVC Shower Perch
Courtesy of Robert Ekstroem


Here's what the shower perch will look like when completed. It is built from 1" PVC pipe and PVC fittings.


Side view of the perch.


1" diameter PVC pipe pieces, cut to appropriate lengths, and pipe fittings. You will need:

  • Four 6-inch lengths of pipe
  • Three 2-foot lengths of pipe
  • Two 3-foot lengths of pipe
  • Six 90-degree elbow fittings
  • Two "T" fittings

  • Lengths of 1" PVC pipe before being cut down to size.


    PVC pipe fittings.


    Leanna, cutting the PVC pipe to size with a powered miter saw (you can do it with clamps and a manual saw as well). Note the safety glasses and an assistant to safely stabilize the short pipe piece in place for cutting.


    Pipes and fittings, semi-assembled, to show where everything goes.


    Separate parts and the assembled project, side by side.
