Step 1: Tools and Components
Utility knife or Scissors (something to cut tape with, or you can just tear it)
Hack saw, or Circular saw(or what ever you have available for use to cut PVC piping)
10 ft. 1/2 in. PVC pipe
Empty plastic bottle (I used 16.9 oz. Pepsi bottle)
Spray paint optional
Step 2: Measure and Cute Pipe
You can try different Lengths if you like but keep in mind to get the exact desired length you will probably need the segments to be cut to 1/4 in. shorter.
Step 3: Adding the Tape and Bottle
Start by sealing up the handle end of the club. I did this using 4 piece of electrical tape that is cut at approximately 2 inches. Make an asterix shape with the tape similar to the exaggerated one in my picture.
For the handle I made it 1/3 the length of the overall club or approx. 7. I used black Friction tape similar to what would be on a hockey stick to wrap around the previously taped end and then worked my way up. I then taped a few times around just at the very end to give it a slight knob. You may think this type of tape is too harsh, feel free to use something else to your liking or even just the bare pipe, but be sure to add the knob at the bottom as this will help hold the 4 other pieces on better.
Next place the bottle on the end(with a 1/2 in. pipe it should just barely fit) and mark where it comes to. Put some tape starting where your mark is and work about 1 in. up 2-3 times around with the electrical tape should do. This step is probably not necessary I just figured it would create a better seal.
Put your bottle on and when you get to the tape you will have to force it and twist it all the way till the pipe is to the bottom of the bottle. Make sure you twist with the tape so that the bottle is not just peeling it off as you twist.
Now start from about an inch or a half inch below the bottle and wrap around the neck of the bottle all the way up just past the threads for the cap and then back down again.
Step 4: Juggle
I more or less was just looking for an excuse to paint the snow. Not Sure how durable the paint will be, so you may want to add several layers and follow up with a clear coat. It also may be best to paint the pieces before assembly so that yours look better than mine do. Also if you plan on painting make sure to remove the plastic wrap around label from the bottle.
The green one makes me thirsty for some Dew.
Next Step How to juggle three clubs, I'm not quite there yet.
Not sure on the total weight of each club, perhaps I will weigh one soon, but they feel good to juggle to me. However the weight and balance can be adjusted easily by the amount of tape added and where on the club you put it.
So how did I do for my first Instructable?
