This one blows me away! I want something like this when I own my own home someday. I only aspire to your kind of creativity. :)

I want radiators like this in EVERY room... but my wife would kill me.

Now on to the PVC version ;)

So can you pipe hot water through it and use it as a towel warmer? This is really great!

Sarah said...

ok - you have to explain this one - where when how?!

Mim: Towel warmer! What an excellent idea!

It looks so steam punk, I love it.

Wow, SO many potential uses for this one! A faucet tap from the "nostrils," (as already mentioned), a radiator, plumbing for a toilet or a few urinals... I could go on but others can chime in, I'm sure.

The down side to using it with water would be that, unless the system was fully flushed every now and then, water or other liquids would sit, allowing sediment and possible stagnancy. Alternatively, some of the pipes could be blocked off on the inside to keep liquid from pooling.

It would make for one hell of a distiller. Varying levels of alcohol could be tapped from different ends, such as the aforementioned nasal "passages."

Skull Snot Vodka anyone? ;)

A copper version would make an interesting garden fountain... Love your site. Great concept.

Thanks everyone! I'm guess it was worth the cuts and metal splinters(!) in my hands!

Sarah: Where = my basement, when = all day Saturday, how = my two hands and a pipe wrench!

I just had to show this one to my husband the plumber. I think he's going to make his own now!
