Introduction: DIY PVC Bow Stand - Cheap and Easy
What you'll need: 5- T PVC Fittings, 4- Corner PVC Fittings, 2- End Caps, 1- Cross Piece, 1- 1 1/4" x 1 1/2" Coupling, 1- 1 1/2" x 2" Coupling, 1- 2" x 3" Coupling, 1- 2' 2" PVC Pipe, 2- 10' 1 1/4" PVC Pipe, PVC Cement, a saw and a compound bow
- We're going to start by cutting the 1 1/4" PVC pipe first, making 2 cuts at 2 3/4" long and 2 cuts at 3" long
- Now cut 2 more pieces at 8" long
- Make 2 more cuts, each at 20" long
- Next, we'll build the bottom frame which will be a square
- Attach the 4 corner pieces to the 2 20" long pieces you just cut
- Now take the two 8" pieces to create the third side of the square and connect the two 20" pieces with these pieces, including one of your T fittings in the middle of the two 8" pieces
- To finish the fourth and final side of the bottom frame, place your 2 3/4" long PVC into a corner piece, then a T fitting, then a 3" long PVC, then another T fitting,then your last 3" PVC piece, then a T fitting, then your final 2 3/4" long PVC piece to finish the base
- Now back to the cutting
- Cut a 9" long piece and a 9 1/4" long piece of your 1 1/4" PVC pipe
- Place both of these pieces into each middle T of the square base you just made, creating a 'beam' running through the middle of the base, running parallel to your 20" long pieces, connecting these two pieces with your final T fitting
- Take the rest of your PVC pipe and place it upright in the middle T fitting you just put in the middle of the base, it should be pretty tall
- Use your bow to measure how tall you'll want this stand piece and cut away the excess
- Place your cross piece at the top of this PVC stand you just placed and cut
- Cut two more 8" long PVC pieces from your 1 1/4" PVC pipe and place them horizontal into your cross fitting
- Put your two caps onto the ends of these two pieces
- Lastly, cut a PVC piece that is just a few inches long and put it in the top of the cross fitting
- No we're ready to build the cup holder!
- Place your 1 1/2" coupling onto the short top PVC pipe you just placed
- Follow it with the 2" coupling
- Now cut a couple inches off of your 2" PVC pipe and place it into your 2" coupling
- Followed by topping it off with your 3" coupling
- There you have it, a cup holder!
- Cut two more 11" long pieces from your 1 1/4" PVC pipe
- Place them into your two open, upright T fittings, these will hold your arrows!
- Now that you have everything in place, you're ready to glue everything to make sure this bow holder is sturdy and ready for the range!
