Note All PVC tubing lengths measured from flat base to highest point of angled cut.
Step 1 Using hacksaw and mitre box, cut the 1m length of PVC tubing in half at a 45° angle. Alternatively, use set square and a pencil to mark cutting line.
Step 2 Measure the 3m length of PVC tubing into the remaining 8 lengths: 1 x 200mm; 2 x 300mm; 3 x 400mm; 2 x 500mm. Measure carefully, as the 8 lengths fit exactly into the 3m length of pipe. Make the first cut at a 45° angle, the next straight across. Continue angle/straight/angle until you have all 8 lengths.
Tip Use a cut piece of tubing as a template for cutting the next.
Step 3 Use medium then fine sanding blocks to smooth cut edges and remove shine from outside of tubing.
Step 4 Lay drop sheet on work surface. Wearing mask, apply plastic primer to tubing. Allow to fully dry.
Step 5 Apply coloured spray paint to tubing, being careful not to get paint on inside of angled ends. Allow to fully dry.
Step 6 Assemble by running a bead of Selleys Landscape Liquid Nails down length of tubing to be joined.
Step 7 Apply adhesive numbers to insides of tubing directly under highest points.
