Console tables are great for holding lamps or other small decorative items next to a wall. Bob from Morristown, New Jersey built himself a console table with some reclaimed wood and industrial pipes. He discovered Simplified Building and Kee Klamp fittings and built the console table pictured above.
Here is what Bob had to say about his project:
I wanted a rustic style table . I had found some hair pin legs at a junk store for the true base but they were only 8" tall and obviously a console table has to be bigger. I wanted to use pipe but did not want to use typical plumbing fixtures and deal with thread showing etc. Kee Klamp fittings were perfect because they allowed me to make sure the table looked clean and I could adjust the height to be level really easily. I love these clamps!
Bob discovered a number of the great qualities of working with Kee Klamp fittings. Because the pipe attaches to the fitting with a mechanical fastener instead of threads, it is much easier to adjust the individual supports to ensure that the table will be level. Additionally, Kee Klamp creates a clean industrial look that is being used in all kinds of modern furniture creations.

Wood is a very popular material for building accessibility ramps to businesses. The one problem with a wooden ramp is that the wood railings do not meet the ADA standard for handrail. ADA standards indicate that the railing must be made of round pipe so the railing can be easily gripped with the hand. Simplified Building has a great solution to this predicament. We've made it easy to add an ADA railing to a wooden access ramp with the use of our ADA modular fittings.
Our ADA railing fittings are easy to install. The fittings use a mechanical fastener instead of a weld which provides both modularity and durability. Because of the mechanical fastening, the railing can be installed on site by a contractor. With a few simple pipe cuts, an entire system can easily be configured and attached to a wooden access ramp. The system is also more durable than welded railing -- click here to see a complete explanation.
The ADA Railing pictured above was built by Ryan from Crisfield, Maryland. The ramp and stairs were added to a modular classroom building that needed to be ADA accessible. Ryan found our railing system simple to use, and you can see that the finished rail turned out great.
One of the ways that we make things easier for contractors is by providing a complete system cost and list of materials based on your drawings. The process starts when you send us a description and dimensions for your project. We provide you with a quote for an ADA railing system to attach to the ramp. If you decide to purchase, we send all the fittings and pipe that you need directly to site.
We do all kinds of ADA railings, so find out more about our systems here: ADA Handrail Systems
Industrial chic is a growing design trend that utilizes hard metals once reserved for technical applications to create softer, functional furniture or decorative accent pieces. One major utilization of this type of design scheme is DIY pipe beds. Constructed from galvanized pipe and lock-in-place, Kee Klamp fittings, these beds epitomize the versatility of this "old meets new" approach to contemporary interior design.
The main draw of industrial chic pipe beds lies within their limitless abilities to be integrated into any type of existing design scheme. Once erected, the beds become visual anchors that allow the other design elements in your bedroom to literally "pop" out of the space, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind bedroom that incorporates your unique, multi-faceted decor tastes.
Simplified Building Concept's client Heather chose a sleek, modern pipe bed design to integrate into her eclectic New York City home. Notice how the bed frame allows your eye to effortlessly flow around the space without harshly interrupting your field of vision. See complete instructions on how to build this bed for yourself.

A desk made of Kee Klamp means that you can achieve customization at a reasonable cost. Our customers have been using fittings for years to create unique desks that meet the requirements of their work and space.
Music composition requires a special set of equipment that doesn't always fit on a run-of-the-mill desk. Recently a couple of our customers tackled the task of building a special desk to support their music composition equipment.
This desk was built with Kee Lite aluminum fittings and distressed pipe to give the desk a unique industrial flair. The desktop was set down into the top structure to emphasize the gritty lines of the pipe.
The entire desk was built at counter top height to facilitate the use of stools (much better than chairs for playing guitars and other instruments). The desk was also has substantial length to support the keyboard, computer and an open workspace.
Here is a breakdown of the parts required to build this desk:
Matt based his multimedia and recording desk on the ergonomic computer desk that I built years ago. However, instead of putting a computer keyboard on the adjustable tray, he built a shelf for his musical keyboard. This feature allows him to tuck the keyboard under the desk when it is not in use.
Matt cut his own desktop into a custom shape to accommodate the equipment that he wanted to place onto the desk. You can read more about Matt's desk via his article in our projects area.
Here's a bit of what Matt had to say about his desk:
I made my desk sit a lot higher than other store-bought desks I've sat at before because my arms always fatigue while typing or controlling a mouse on a desk that is a lower height, even though I'm not that tall of a person. There is also a slide out tray for a keyboard controller and there's plenty of space for my software controllers and music gear on top with cutouts on the rear left and rear right for speaker stands.
