PVC shelf unit for compartment

I got tired of working out of two compartments for set-up/take-down, so made a shelf unit for a compartment that is light, sturdy, and easy to make with no skills and minimal tools. It holds every thing I need for that set-up. The only thing original (at least, I have not seen it before) is the use of cable-ties to hold the shelf (see pictures) . The only advice is to do a dry assembly before gluing to make sure it will fit through the compartment doorway. If needed you may have to do the final assembly in place. The size of your pieces of pipe will be determined by the size of your compartment.

Really a good idea! You can customize the size and it's light weight. I like it!
