Take control of those crowds and paparazzi at your events with your own barriers.

Step 1: end result

OK so my version is not quite as tough as the front page.  But it will do our job!  I'm making this to help with a kids' run.  This barrier will help us keep the "paparazzi parents" back from the finish line. 
<p>Bobcjr,</p><p>Do you recall where you purchased your bowls.</p><p>What is the approximate diameter and depth of the bowls?</p><p> It seems to me, if the coupler piece inside the cement stays put, then the bowls would too. So, I'm wondering, did the hardened cement drop right out of the bowls or did you have to crack the bowls off in pieces?</p><p>Thank you for showing this tutorial. It has been very helpful.</p>
How much did this project cost approx? How much time did you invest? How heavy are the barriers? Nice work by the way!
My finished barriers included a 1/4&quot; ply base attached with liquid nails. Final weight is 8.1 pounds each. That doesn't sound like much - but it &quot;feels&quot; very right.
I forgot you might want to include some cost for barrier tape - use plastic instead of crepe paper. If it rains that crepe is toast! Just saw on amazon for $8 for 1,000 foot roll. You probably won't use that up right away.
Thanks much. The cost was approximately $40, but I already had some of the materials. My rough breakdown: <br>$8 (2) 10 foot 1.5&quot; pvc <br>$5 50lbs fast set quickrete <br>$6 (6) bowls <br>$6 (6) pvc fittings <br>$5 optional plywood <br>$5 optional liquid nails <br>$5 optional paint <br>$40 total but I'm sure could be done for less.
