Thank you for letting us see all that you did!!! I have had pvc joints jostling about in my head for the past year, this helps me to put some flesh on it!
Great job on the joints but love love to see how you did the rest . Amazing work
Thank you very much! Unfortunately, the rest of that project was "how am I going to do that? I'll try that. Wow I can't believe how well that worked!" If I ever do another project like this, I will make an Instructable as I do it.
