Hi. How deep do you need the box to be? Less than a couple of inches then glue or screw two lengths of 2 by 2 (or 2 by 1, or whatever) to the wall either side of the pipework making sure the they are parallel. Cut and glue or screw lengths of your decent wood to the outside edge of the 2x2. Then cut and glue/screw the decent wood across the front. One tip, if you screw the covers on, do make sure you screw into the 2x2, not the pipes â€“ it has happened!
(Second tip, don't make a feature of the boxing in, however decent the covering wood you still don't really want to draw the eye to what is ultimately boxed in pipework. Making it blend in rather than stand out is often better.)
