I am wanting to make my own pole bending poles and bases because going out and buying them are just so exspensive.! I heard that you can use pvc pipe as the poles and coffee cans as the bases. What do you use for homemade poles and bases? Thanks.!
We made our with PVC pipes (couldn't tell you the diameter, but you can pick it out in the hardware store. Probably around 3 or 4 inches.)
And then we used ice cream pails to make the base. We tied the PVC pipes to a fence so that they would stand perfectly straight while the cement dries in the pails. And then for a while (until the pails fall apart in a year or two), you have a handle with which to carry them.
