Step 3: Step 2

Drill one hole towards the bottom of the the small pipe. Drill 3 holes towards the top of the big pipe. Then drill as many holes as you desire towards the bottom of the big pipe.

Step 4: Step 3

Find something that will fit in the big holes on the small pipe and plug the end closest to the holes that you drilled. Take a ratchet extension and bit. Stick it through the whole on the small pipe and then put hot glue on the bit and stick it on the extension. Then stick the small pipe through the big one.
