total cost: $9.51
total time: about 1 hour
Step 1: Go shopping
2 ten foot lengths of PVC. (I used 3/4" but feel free to use other sizes, just be sure your fittings are the same dimension)
3 end caps
1 threaded hose connector
2 elbow joints (90 degree)
2 T connections
PVC Cement (I skipped on the primer, use this if you want)
Step 2: Grab your tools
1/16 or 3/32 inch drill bits (or other sizes if you're feeling sassy)
saw (fret saw, hack saw, Sawzall, whatever)
Step 3: Start cutting
2 at 5 feet
1 at 4 feet
4 at 18 inches
Cut one of the 10' lengths in half so that you have two 5' sections.
Then, cut a 4' section from the second one. Cut the remaining 6' section in half and then each of the 3' sections in half.
Step 4: Start glueing
Lay your pieces out and get your PVC Cement ready. The glue dries fast so you'll want to just do one piece at a time.
Start with the feet. Take one of the 18" sections and an end cap. Daub some glue inside the lip of the end cap and around the outside edge of the piece and stick the cap on.
Repeat this 2 more times for 2 more of the 18" pieces. On the 4th one, attach the threaded hose attachment piece.
Step 5: More glue - connect the feet
Repeat the process of daubing cement inside the T joins and on the PVC lengths and sticking them together.
When you're done, you should have 2 pieces as in the picture.
