Mega Tree Base 3.0

Recommended Posts

This will be my thirst mega tree base, and most likely the final one!

Year 1 and 2: 1/2" PVC

Year 3: 1/2" flat bar with weld tabls (worked better than I thought)

Year 4: Rolled 1/2" square tubing

The photo shows 160 feet of 1/2 steel tubing that has had a curve added to it! Next year I think I'll be remaking my leaping light arches out of steel pipe also (now that I have a roller to put a curve in steel.) The sections are 8' 3" each when cut down (so a 65' circumference on the tree) and will be welded and pinned together with internal pinning.

Its comming along - hope to have a completed base this weekend.

Also started in on the "lift header" for the lights by rolling some 2" flat bar into a circle.
