*When using any tools or chemical products, always use caution and follow your manufacturers directions. I like to do this entire project outdoors so I have plenty of room to work and a well ventilated area.
Start by creating a pattern and tracing it onto your 4" schedule 40 PVC pipe. This is by far, the most frustrating and time consuming part. I wasted so much time and just as much PVC cutting out a pattern that was not even close to be proportionate.
You can save yourself all the time and frustration and head on over to my blog and find my exact patterns. You can also find all 16 pvc pipe patterns that I have available including all my birds, cat, dog and more.
Once you have it all traced, use your jig saw to cut out your entire pattern.
