Building your project is as easy as 1, 2, 3… and 4!
You’ve learned all about our products and you are now ready to get in the “tubetinking” game? This is the right place to start!
Make a plan
All you need is a good ol’ pencil and a piece of paper to create a plan and start your first tinktube project! You might want to use an architectural design software such as Sketchup if you are familiar with this type of tool. Then, grab a measuring tape and plan the details. Make sure you explore our free plans and tutorials to get insight on measurements and the parts to be used. The plan is yours to draw and the possibilities are endless!
Choose the parts
You got your plan, you are now ready to define the parts you’ll need. Start with figuring out how many tubes you’ll need. Then choose the right joints, depending on the angles of your structure. The last step will be to ask yourself if you’ll need any other products, such as casters, T-Cutter or other accessories. Write down the parts you’ll need to buy on your plan and shop online!
At this point, you might be wondering how you’ll cut the tubes, how you’ll fix the connectors or what tools you’ll need to build your first project. We’ve made a whole bunch of tutorials for you, tubetinker!
Make it evolve
From a changing table to a baby park – to a coffee table or to a shelving system: tinktube projects can evolve throughout the course of your life, adapting to your needs and reality. You’ll be able to keep the same tubes and connectors; use the same ones to build various projects for years, and change only the surfaces!
