Copper and wood, working fine together.

Copper pipes and connecting elements are widely available in any hardware store, like B&Q, Wickes etc. It is very easy to work with, cutting the pipes requires a specially designed knife, that is not expensive at all, rest of connectors you can purchase as needed for specific project.

Copper and rustic wood goes really nice together, any finish will look stunning, from real dark walnut to natural oak, even old scaffolding boards lightly sanded will make an eye turning project.

One thing I have noticed working with copper pipes, as you handle them, your hands having some moisture will leave some marks, looking like fatty spots, taking a high grid sand paper- 400 and up and giving it a good rub, will bring beautiful colour back to life.
