what can I do with a mailing tube? Answered

Is there any cool project I can do with a mailing tube? At first I thought a spud gun, but the pressures would exceed cardboard strength. Maybe a quiver. Btw it's 6 feet long and 2 inches ID.

Digeridoo

Periscope - add 2 small mirrors and a few angled cuts

Rack for cat toys - I covered some tubes with fun wrapping paper and use them to store the "things on a stick" type cat toys. You know you have a lot of cat toys when you have to build a cat toy organizer.

Use it as the fuselage for a model rocket, make a 6 foot long periscope, paint red and white stripes spiralling around it for a holiday decoration peppermint stick, store your old posters in it, store your fishing rod in it...

Some people create mazes for pets like mice, gerbils or bunnies with cardboard tubes.
