Make your own patio furniture from PVC

Interested in making cool stuff out of PVC pipe? It's easy—if you have the right materials. The PVC pipe offered at home centers for plumbing isn't the best to use for furniture or outdoor projects because it's brittle, ugly and can't stand up to the sun. To make long-lasting furniture, use specially formulated, furniture-grade PVC fittings and piping. Furniture grade PVC is sleeker, colorfast (available in white and colors), impact resistant and UV resistant, and has no unsightly printing or stampings. You can even make curves and shapes by heat bending it.

To find suppliers (some of whom also sell plans) search “furniture grade PVC pipe.”
