I love PVC projects. Like tinker toys and Legos for adults. Still learning and wanted to pass on two big lessons I learned in the last few months.
Three methods I've tried for Cutting PVC.
PVC Ratchet Cutter
Hack Saw/Miter Saw.
And Miter saw with a metal cutoff blade.
A cool site where I got the free plans for the end table. www.eplansets.com/free_furniture_plans.htm
This was a fun project, took a few hours. But without evenly cut pipes that were exactly the right length it would have been a nightmare.
