    The building phase.

    PVC cut to 4'


    T on the end cemented.


    Cement the cut off 1' to the other end of the T.


    Cut the other piece of pvc to 4' and cement the 45* to it.


    Cement caps on each end of the pvc.


    No cement on the lower part of the T. Drill 1/4" hole and use the bail pin.


    Drill for the 2 eye bolts with clevice.


    Hammer the 24" spike in the ground bout 12"


    RED WHITE AND BLUE



    Going to spray paint the pole white to cover the markings on the pvc. Got another to make for my POW/MIA Flag

    Here are a couple better shots. You can see how the pole changed with the wind.

    Thanks nepas, great work. Wish I could spend more time in the RV, I'm going crazy just waiting for the Memorial Day trip! I use the Star Spangled windsock for my campsites, but that's a great idea.
