comment Can I use old abandoned iron pipe as electrical conduit?
I wasn't aware that one could be "too cautious" when it came to working with electricity. But hey, if you want to play fast and loose with something that can kill you or a family member, who am I to argue?

Well you kinda do ;) No strength = no signal. Some signal = some strength.

comment Is there a name for PVC pipe that's approx 1/2“ ID and 5/8” OD?
There is PVC and CPVC - pvc is white and IIRC usually slightly thicker than CPVC. CPVC is more of a beige color.

comment What kind of connection is used to attach the legs to this table?
I agree completely. That should give you an indication of what I think about that particular join. ;)

comment What kind of connection is used to attach the legs to this table?
Look at the pictures closely - the table top is notched with a 1/4 round cutout to fit the legs, and the legs are topped level with the top of the table. It's possible that there is a mortice joint hidden inside that cutout that's simply secured by the hangar bolt but I wouldn't bet on it without actual disassembly of the table.

And I wouldn't put too much faith in a table built using this technique, personally. The entire load of the table is relying on the shear strength of four little bolts...

comment Is there a way to trace water pipes through walls?
That was half the question: the whole question was how to trace water pipes with the goal of finding the shutoff valve..

Buy higher quality curtain rods.

And as stated above - you still won't find your valves without actually looking.
