Plastic PVC is most commonly used by plumbers and very clever DIY enthusiasts. This material and pipe were designed to transport water, as it cannot wear out over time like rusting metal can. PVC is also structurally very strong. When parts are constructed properly, it can support structures that are hundreds of pounds!
This class aims to go over the material properties of PVC as well as the most common ways it is worked, machined, joined, and finished. You'll be inspired to create furniture, agriculture projects, and more after learning these simple techniques to work with PVC.
