    Making Faux PVC Bamboo

    Hi, So you were building layers and textures with spray paint by wiping it with what? please to thin spray paint for more transparentness? I have sprayed some but am now going to switch to water base outdoor craft paint sealed in between coats with polyurethane matt spray or brush on. Mostly because some spray can nozzles refuse to unclog or have lost pressure when much paint is still in can ^&$&*. Also will prep Pvc a bit with a wood file for texture. THANKS

I made the nodes by wrapping a soft 16 gage wire around once per node and heated it slowly with a torch causing pvc to swell on both sides of wire and had a crackle surface on knuckle. then I removed wire and painted.I was looking to review that video but cant find it .

It holds up to 220 lbs. besides our world has been blacktopped smooth....and its legal to smoke pot ....so what does anyone expect? Only replaced the back wheels, because according to another youtube vid, it flips too easy if the front flater wheels are upgraded.Also Added a comment after comment of no need for extra ax...
