Step 2: Cutting and Drilling

First, measure your horizontal pieces - you will need three of the same length. 

For this sized project you will need 52 inch pieces.  I suggest you cut the PVC with your mitre saw to get a nice clean cut. 

Next, you need to measure where you will drill the holes with your hole saw.

Start 2 1/2 inches from one end make a mark, then mark every four inches on center.
Do this on two of the pieces.  On the third piece you will do the same measurement, except this will be the top.  You will need to drill the marks with your smaller drillbit.  On the other side you want to offset your measurement by 1/2 an inch to keep them staggered.

TIP:  Use the 90 degree fittings placed in opposite directions to keep your PVC from moving while you drill. 

You will also need to cut 2 pieces for the sides at about 36 inches.  You will also need four smaller pieces of the same size around 5 to 6 inches to use to connect the fittings.

Next, you will need to drill out the pipe strap with your larger drill bit.
