Keep two full-length pipes aside for the uprights. Use a tube cutter to cut one pipe in half to make the top and base rails.
To complete the base, cut the other pipe into two 250mm front supports and two 350mm back supports.
Use elbows to connect the top rail to the uprights. At the bottom of the uprights, use tees to connect back supports, then add elbows to join them with the base rail.
Attach front supports to the tees and add caps to the ends. Position the stand with tent pegs around the base to keep it secure, then hang the sign with wire.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
