    Good work. The only brand I know for this stuff is FrostKing. I've used it to thicken the shaft of my kayak paddle. By the way, m ake another one but line the inside with tape and don't close the thing. That way you'll have a nice slip-on handle for heavy grocery bags.

    Interesting idea. When you say tape on the inside, you mean sticky side on the inside of the pipe insulation?
