Introduction: Waterproof Storage Tube

About: I am a former English teacher turned Interactive Media Instructor turned STEM teacher turned computer science teacher. I like to make, fix, and take apart. Few things are more fun than taking something apart t…

I thought of this the other day after watching the King of Random's video on how to make soda cap containers. I took his idea and changed it some.

Step 1: Tools/Materials

Tools

Pipe Cutter

Sandpaper (optional)

Materials

Plastic Soda Bottle

Epoxy

1/2 inch Plastic Pipe

Duct Tape

Step 2: Cut Off the Top of Bottle

Use the pipe cutter to cut the top of the bottle off. Hold the body of the bottle firmly. The pipe cutter will cut the top off but it will not be completely straight. That is fine for what we are going to do.

Step 3: Cut Your Pipe

Do a dry fit of the caps and decide where you want to cut it. I wanted to wrap duct tape around mine so I made sure to include it in my measurements. Use a marker to line up the pipe cutter with where you want to cut it. Then do another dry fit on the piece.

Step 4: Epoxy the Caps

I used a 1 minute epoxy to glue the caps on the ends of the pipes. I mixed it with a toothpick and spread it on the ends of the pipes. Then I put the cap on and rotated it to get as even a coverage as possible. Make sure you move quickly.

Step 5: Wrap and Store

I wrapped mine in duct tape, but I might make one wrapped in paracord. Then store whatever you can get to fit. This was a quick and fun project that anyone could do.
