Vinyl Storage
« on: June 27, 2012, 10:44:51 PM »
Hi Peeps

Was trawling through my emails from Pinterest about who was pinning my boards, and I went and looked at 1 of the ladies who pinned 1 of my boards; and as usual I had to go to the ends of the earth to find the original information.

And I just wondered if anyone knew how this might have been constructed: http://coreykarribrayden.blogspot.co.uk/ I did send an email on Sunday 24th of June asking for information and maybe I just need to be a little more patient. I can work out the corners and tubing that would be needed, but not too sure of how the bit for the vinyl rolls would be done?

Any input would be appreciated, because I keep seeing 2 of these items put together with some kind of shelving system (IKEA comes to mind for some reason) to hold my stash of cards and papers etc.......

That looks like PVC pipe.  It's used for plumbing.  She says that you can e-mail her and she'll send the directions to you.  :D

I've also seen where the core tubes from either the original vinyl roll or carpet rolls were cut up and glued together and they looked like they worked well (though probably not as easy to find if you want the larger carpet rolls).

Yes, it is PVC pipe.  See this for some examples of what can be done with it.  I built a bed frame once for our vacation home years ago.

It is really fun to figure out all the pieces and assembling them.

OH NO! More enabling. My husband is a plumber and we have a lot of pvc pipes sitting behind his work shed.

The pvc pipes are easy to cut, drill and sand. I have used some of the offcuts in my workroom and will have to take a few photos. I only stacked the pipes but may have to experiment a bit more after looking at Susan's links.

I don't know if different gluing methods are used in different countries. If you do buy the pvc glues read the instructions carefully. The glues used here are a two step process, the first part strips the coating from the pvc for the glue to bond better. It is extremely carcinogenic and many plumbers have died young due to brain  cancer.
