Definitely the building material of kings.† We used 1 by 4ís for the tube supports, with 2ĺĒ holes in them.† The tubes were suspended by the addition of pipe couplings to the tops of the tubes.† The extra coupling thickness was what kept the pipes up.† The two tiers were at 46Ē high for the back tier and 43Ē for the front tier.† We used 1 by 4ís again for the sides (total of 4, 2 per tier).
†† Structural concerns
Of course, you need to make sure that your instrument wonít slump over to the side or fall backwards or forwards.† We used wire for cross-bracing, each wire running from one corner to the other.† The wires also ran to the base boards, which extended about a foot in front and back of the instrument.†
If youíve been paying attention, you probably already know how to do this.† If you havenít, then maybe building a PVC instrument isnít for you.
