I wanted these chart stands to use at home, but they would be great in a Bible classroom also.
I showed one of the pictures of the table top chart stands to my husband and asked if he could make me one. Well, I knew he could, so basically the question was "Will you?"
For this table top poster stand:
2- 3/4-inch PVC Tee (item #23874 @ .50 each)
6- 3/4-inch 90-Degree PVC Slip Elbow (item #23868 @ .53 each)
1- PVC Pipe 3/4-inch x 10-ft (item # 23990 $2.44)
Note: These pieces do not screw in, each piece just pushes in the connecting part.
From the PVC pipe, cut these:
5 @ 13"
4 @ 4"
He used a Saws All to cut the PVC pieces. They fit into the tee's and elbow really nice. They can be glued to stay together, but I didn't because they fit good and I want to be able to take them apart and store them. Also, I can easily take them apart to take and use in Bible class!
He went back to Lowes and got the same supplies again (see the above list) and picked up the paint also. I said I wanted teal or turquoise, and he found the perfect color!
2 @ 24"
3 @ 20"
4 @ 4"
screw, washer and used a wing nut to attach it. I used the clips I found at Dollar Tree. These are much easier for my hands to use, but you could use whatever clips you have and like.
This post from Falling Into First has directions and more including Washi Tape to finish it. I liked this one also from Differentiation Station. It has a different base (like I wanted) and more ideas. Check them both out and make your own!
