    Congrats! I am poor too and have an advanced degree in jerry-rigging if you run into any snags. Keep us updated.

    Well now I just can't think of any more reasons why it wouldn't work. Sounds like it will be able to stand for quite a while, nice work!

    I took thin wall PVC and I cut it into smaller sections, about 4 to 6 inches long. Then I took a small section out long ways, to make a "C" shape.
