These pictures show the tubes being picked up from the manufacturer,
and deposited at the build facility (the back patio).
Shocking how big the tubes actually are.
This project does appear to be on the verge of insanity.
Making & Cutting Guide
To cut the tubes a sort of miter box was built.
Two pieces of 3/4" plywood were cut to 24" X 24" and an 18" holes was
cut into each.
The front and back are made into a box with some 1" pine board.
The tubes were marked to length by taping a tape measure to the tube,
and then all marks were placed on the tube at once.
Three wraps of painter mask off paper was wrapped around the tubes to
mark not only the cut line, but also the miter box placement.
Ends were marked for a "clean-up" cut.
The final picture shows tubes ready to be cut on the following day.
