In discussion with my house-mate Sam, we concluded there was a fairly easy mathematical way to calculate the lengths the organ pipes should be to make the desired notes. Then, wanting to get on with it, I ignored the mathematics and eye balled the sizing with the Skilsaw. I cut 4 pipes and miraculous thing occurred. They fell in tune to form a major triad and an octave. Even if that doesn't mean anything to you, listen to the video and you'll get it.

What's more, again by chance, the pipes tuning matches that of the 60Hz mains electricity in our house! So the pipes can be played along with any electrical item that hums... (unfortunately 60Hz is somewhere between an A# and a B).
