Making a background for pictures taking
Here is how I made a frame to hang white fabric over to use as a background for photos... for only about $4.50! I bought three 5 foot pieces of 1/2 inch pvc pipe, 2 elbow pieces (L shaped) and 2 tee pieces (like the letter T). I found the pvc pipe at my local Menards. I cut one 3 foot piece, two 2 foot pieces, two 18 inch pieces and two 6 inch pieces. I had a three foot piece left. I did use my table saw to cut the pvc pipe, but you can use most any type of hand saw to cut it too. I don't think a carpet knife would work though, you need a serrated edge! The length of the pieces can be adjusted according to your needs. I made mine fairly big as I have some larger items.
