That's the piping you're trying to create.

Press h to see a list of objects in your scene. There should be an object called Shape (unless you gave it a different name when you created it from the steps you did). Open the modifier panel and then expand the Rendering rollout. Click on Enable in Renderer and Enable in Viewport. Select radial to make it cylindrical shaped, and set the thickness value to size.

Hope that helps. If you need anymore help, this is the tutuorial I followed (approx 6:30 mark):
