Flexpvc.com has all the fittings you need. Not sure if its the right price. But I know they have them.

Not sure why original poster needs any fittings at all.

How about 2x4s as the sides of your shelf with holes drilled in them the same size as your tube diameter? Would be as strong. Find a buddy with a drill press.

I built the first part of my PVC rack on 10/31/12 and here is what happened in 6 months. "If you build it you can fill it". I am going with the (LIFE PLAN) Buy now save later.

I'm guessing the 8" tubes, which you can find at your local Home Depot, would be the best size for your discs.
Finally got off my lazy arse and finished my rack with the concrete tubes. I am far from a good woodworker, but I am absolutely ecstatic with how well this turned out. I am curious to see if the tubes sink any over time, but they seem pretty strong atm.
