Next we need to build bottom and top trunk ring.
Take a 8' length of the black cold water pipe and insert a 1/2" insert coupling.
Connect the two ends to complete the circle. As seen in picture. You might need to heat the ends to get the insert couplings in, depending on the tempurature.
Now we need make a trunk ring holder. We will need 8 of these to
hold the trunk rings in place. Also, you will need 4 more of these
to hold the light ring to the base.
The make one you will need a 3/4" Dura and 3/4" Spears snap-on tee.
Cut a 1 1/2" length of 3/4" pipe to use to glue both snap-on tees
together. Make sure each snap-on tee is glued perpendicular to the
other. Once you have made 12 of these, set 8 of them aside for later.
Take four of the ring holders and slip the Dura end onto the black
poly pipe. It will have a loose fit. The Dura end only needs to hold the trunk ring in place.
Now snap the Spears snap-on tees onto the outside of the octagon
on your base.
