And I thought, "There's gotta be a way to dupe this." Challenge accepted.It took a couple trips to Lowes to browse the plumbing isle looking for the perfect hose and making the other shoppers look at me funny as I inserted dowel rods into different tubes to test the width, plus one awkward conversation as I had the nice sales associate cut my tubing to the correct length.
"What are you fixing?"
”Ummm...I am making a ladder with that as the arched top..."
"Okay, here ya go...."
Anyway, enough of that. Here's your material list:
•Two 1 1/4 inch dowel rods cut to 5 feet
•Two 3/4 inch dowel rods cut to four 20" pieces(you can have these cut at the hardware store or cut them yourself)
•36 inches of 1 1/4 inch inner diameter plumbing. (pictured below)
•Wood glue (had on hand)
•Gold spray paint (had on hand)
- Measuring tape
- Nail gun (not necessary but I used it for extra stability
- 3/4 inch spade bit
