The PVC Flag Pole Project- Part Two Making the Cuts
First things first to build this flag pole you need a materials list. Most of the items below can be found at your local home center or hardware store.
- 1 – 10 foot long piece of 3/4″ pvc pipe
- 1 – 45 degree 3/4″ pvc fitting
- 1 – 3/4″ pvc T fitting
- 2 – 3/4″ pvc end caps
- 1 – 2 foot long piece of concrete rebar (or any metal stake that fits inside your pvc pipe)
Now that we have the material we can get to work. Take the ten foot long piece of pvc pipe and cut it into two four foot long piece and two two foot long pieces. The cuts in pvc can be made using a simple hack saw or you can use a powered miter saw with the appropriate blade as I did (Always remember that when you use power tools to be safe and wear safety goggles). A picture of the cut pieces is shown below. Tomorrow we will put the flag pole together.
