Here I made a Motorcycle Shell Garage, using PVC pipe and a Tarp.
You will need 1/4 inch PVC pipe I used 7- 10 foot pieces
10- 1/4 inch elbows
10- 1/4 inch T-connectors
2-trailer hitch (or something to link all the T-connectors together ie. A long bolt with washers and a nut)
Pipe saw (I used a miter saw)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: PVC Pipe
I took PVC pipe with T connectors and elbows. I made 5 U shapes.
I cut top pieces starting at 3 feet then added an additional 2 inches for each additional piece:
I cut the sides starting at 5 feet and added 1 1/2 inches
2x 5 ft
2x 5 ft 1 1/2......
Step 2: Cut the T-connectors and Put on the Hitch
I cut the T connectors to slide flush on the trailer hitch. Then slide them on.
Step 3: Cut and Sew for PVC Pipe
When you cut the tarp it is the length of each U shape, so the smallest U it is 5 feet plus 5 feet plus 3 feet plus additional room for the piping and sewing this will be the length of the tarp piece.
Measure the height by standing the PVC pieces all up with the middle piece straight up and 90 degrees and side pieces at 45 degrees, the distance between the two pieces is the height of the tarp.
Measure the 3 feet plus(sewing for pipe) on the center of the top of the tarp and begin to slope to the ends of the length of the tarp. Sew 3 inches along edges of tarp at all the places where the pipe will fit inside.
Step 4: Sew for PVC Pipe
Sew 3 inches along edges of tarp at all the places where the pipe will fit inside.
When you get to the joint area I left a small place in order to get to the joint to glue the elbow In place.
Step 5: Finnished
Put it all together and glue all the joints ensuring that your pieces are straight.
