1-inch PVC pipe. It's 36 inches high (excepting the peaked part, which adds another 2 and 1/2 feet, roughly), and the footprint is 8 ft X 12 ft. The "Tuftex" plastic panels are 26 inches X 8 ft, so that's what decided on the width.
Home made flag pole stand. Great for Cub Scouts. Easy to make. 2x6x8 piece of wood and a 12 inch piece of 1 1/4 PVC pipe used as pole holder. Cut each piece 12 inches long. Sand and paint. Use 3 inch screws to hold together. Takes longer for paint to dry then it does to make flag stand. Wolf elective practice Flag Ceremony at every Den Meeting.
Kids bike wash sprinkler! 1/2 inch PVC pipe cut into 2 1/2 ft lengths for all sides, top 3 sprinkler pieces are 3 ft wide. 1/8 in drill bit. Do not go crazy drilling holes or your water pressure won't get to the end - trust me, I learned the hard way. Need PVC cement. Add noodles. Get creative!
Eight, 10- and 18-inch-diameter PVC pipes cut to varying heights serve as the bases for these mosaic pillars. Overturned terra-cotta saucers turn two of the pipes into pedestals; the third cradles a flowerpot
I drilled 2.5" holes between all the sections, and added PVC tubing to protect to wood from nibbly hamsters. The top section had no ventilation, so I made the front surface out of hardware cloth. The bottom two floors (and an inch of the top) is clear plexiglass.
