Let's Get Started

To reduce the risk of injury user must read instruction manuals for all tools used in this project. Wear eye and respiratory protection. Use clamps to support work piece whenever practical.

STEP 1

Step 1

Start by creating your four posts, threading each of the galvanized pipes to a flange. Next, thread a PVC female connector to the top of each pipe. You can drill the flange to the ground or if you'd like the cabana to be easily stored away, set it into a large flower pot as we did and anchor the pots with sand.

STEP 2

Step 2

Cut your PVC framework to size with your Dremel Saw-Max tool and your SM500 Wood and Plastic Wheel. If you are following our dimensions, you'll need to cut: four pieces at 2" long, four pieces at 2' long, two pieces at 7' long and two pieces at 9' long. We always recommend securing your workpiece onto your work bench using a clamp or vice. With your pipe secure, plunge your Saw-Max tool equipped with the SM500 wheel into your lines of cut. You'll notice that the abrasive edge of the cutting wheel leaves a nice, smooth finish behind in your pipe.

STEP 3

Step 3

Now it is time to connect your framework together. First, adjoin a 2' PVC pipe to the female connector on each of the galvanized pipes.

STEP 4

Step 4

Then, lay out the top frame of the cabana as depicted here, connecting the elbow frames to each T-connector with the 2" PVC pieces you cut in step 2.

STEP 5

Step 5

Once you have all pieces together, you can secure the fit of your top frame by drilling each end of the elbow joints. Make this step easier with the Dremel 4200 and a 150 drill bit. Mount the accessory into the 4200 tool, set the tool to a speed of 5-10 and plunge straight down into the two ends of the joint. Fit the corners back together and secure them with a screw through the pilot holes. If you choose to screw the pieces together, be sure to add your desired window coverings or fabric, sliding them onto each side of your frame before securing it together.

Finally secure each of your T-joints on top of each of the corner PVC stands.
