    I am constructing a desk. I need a 2" pipe fitting that resembles the attached shape. McMaster.com and Home Depot only have regular pipe fittings like tees and crosses.

    Anyone know where I could order such a pipe fitting?

    The shape reminds me of both tent and scaffold fittings, but look-alike is as far as I'll go. ;)

    Its not that you buy oddly shaped pipes but you bend and cut them as you need. The reason why home depot only sells regular pipe fittings is because if you need anything else you do it yourself.

    Surely you could get it custom made?

    I'm sure it would cost a few dollars or so, but I'm sure it's possible.

    OK. From what I've gathered, it seems impossible purchase a pipe fitting like this, probably because it would have no use in actual plumbing!

    I'm going to find a shop to weld two tees at a 90º angle for me. That should accomplish what I want.
