    Hi,This looks great. I will definitely be looking at building one of these.I have a suggestion to offer on the build process. I make all sorts of holders, etc., with PVC pipe. I have found that, once I have my pipe parts lined up and squared, I can hold things steady with a small sheet-metal screw, instead of glue. The press-fit of the pipe really only needs to be pinned in place.I drill a small hole in in the 'joint', in a location that won't interfere with standing (or movement, in a project like this), and use brass screws for outside projects, or any screw for inside, and I've never had a bit of loosening.I've found that this eliminates the fumes (obviously) and that I can tinker with projects in the future without throwing away all the glued-up bits, if I need to tweak dimensions. ...

Since this sort of project doesn't need water-tight connections, pinning the joints in place should last for years.Again, thanks for publishing this. Great work!Cheers!
