Welcome back everyone. Today happens to be a dog show day and we all know what that means don’t we !?! Yep, plenty of time just waiting around for the next runs which translates to a perfect time to bust out another post. Keeping with the non-bird theme let’s go with a show and tell entry. It has been awhile since we have had one of these (at least that I can remember) to the point I kinda feel like a slacker – although all free time has been invested in finishing up project Aaaauuuurrrnnnnoooollld. The topic today is an addition we made to our photography business. Linda is starting to get a lot of attention with her dog photography and even has a major dog show event coming up in a month or so. She had asked me for a better way to display our wares. Of course this was met with procrastination until the day before one of her shows last week. Guilt stricken I headed down my favorite PVC aisle and planned something out.
Key design points was it could not fall over and had to handle a variety of sizes – particular the large 13x19s down to the more standard 8×10 framed offerings. As per all my PVC projects a (very) rough concept is sketched out and the rest is designed either in the store or during the build process. Concerned about the stability element a general collection of 1″ connectors were purchased and 10 5′ sections of pipe – usually I’d buy the larger size but did not want to bother tying them down in the truck. They were also the same price whether cut or not so advantage anyway.
