I came up with this simple trick to give PVC pipe a realistic wood texture when I built a few plastic didgeridoos a couple of years ago. It would also work for theater, home decor or backyard tiki-bars! Send an invite if you build that last one.
Great complete instructions to build a wheeled photo light stand. The design and materials could be modified slightly and adapted to many uses. Four or even five casters for stability with PVC pipe for lighter weight?
