The task of our project was to create a spool holder that had to attach onto the table. The spool holder needed to hold tape, string, and wire. It needed to meet the criteria of pulling the material off easily, and without the actual holder slipping off the table.  

Because the spool holder is attached to the edge of the table, there are elbows on both sides, with two more gripping onto the edge, wrapping around the table.

Materials Needed:
·      2  15” in PVC pipe *
·      2   6” in PVC pipes *
·      2   4” in PVC pipes *
·      2   T joints
·      8   Elbow joints
·      4   1” in PVC connectors *
·      2   2” in PVC connectors *
·      2  2.8” in PVC pipes *
`     1  16 1/2" in wooden dowel *

*Depending on how wide your table is, the PVC pipe measurements might have to be adjusted.

Step 1: Assembling the material holding rod

Take the one 16 1/2" in wooden dowel and connect 1" in PVC connectors onto both ends of the wooden dowel.
