Lay out the pieces of the rack on a flat surface. Place the tees and elbows in line with the pipes, but don’t attach them yet—once connected, they can’t be pulled apart. Check that the pot rack is even and square, accounting for ½ inch of pipe inside each connection and ¾ inch on each side of the corners. Assemble the rack by pushing the pipes into the connectors as far as they will go.
