Making L Shaped Shower Curtain Rod
L shaped shower curtain rod is a good way to create a custom curtain rod, and it can become a lot cheaper than buying an L-shaped bar, or having a plumber install one. You can use simple copper pipe to make a curtain rod, and you do not need to do any welding or have any plumbing experience to do the job. Measure the outer edge of the tub or shower basin part and end where you want the curtain rod L to go. Adding an inch over the length and width measurement so you can take the rod will be slightly larger than the tub or shower basin.
Cut two pieces of copper pipe to the length and width measurements taken using pipe cutters or a hacksaw. Insert the end of the piece length on one side of a three way pipe connector, and the end of the piece wide on the other side, with the remaining opening facing up. This will make a corner, and it will give you the L shaped shower curtain rod.

Measure from the ceiling to the height you want the L shaped shower curtain rod to hang, and cut a third piece of copper tube to this length. Insert this piece vertically in the third opening of the three way connector. Insert a mounting flange on the free end of the length, width and height of the copper pipes in vertical position, and connect the flanges to the pipes with the screws that accompany the flanges.
