Yes indeed Chris.

Phillip I work with engineers in my job each day and they could not hold a candle to your bush skills. And the best thing about you sharing your new ideas is that they often will spark a similar new idea in someone else. You may never know all the people you have helped by sharing.  No one will ever be able to pay you as much as you are really worth.  I think we need to give you an honorary Engineer of Puppetry degree.

Ha ha ha, Snail, thanks for the compliments. The only degree I have, is a 37 degree body temperature . Some might say I am a couple degrees off plumb... anyhow, I'm glad to be of service.

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for all the great ideas.    The video was priceless!! I have built PVC stages before, but my husband hates the stuff because it is hard to pack and carry loose and it is heavy in a bag (2" PVC) and since he is the one who usually has to help pack it up and tote it around, I have let him build some from his own design. They are built to last, but out of steel and heavy stuff. We could easily perform with elephants on most of them, but I cannot move them by myself and he will be going in for knee surgery this week so I need to put together something I can manage. I love the elastic idea so I will know exactly which rod goes into which joint. I have two show right now that I will need to do on my own so I better get busy.
Did I mention that you all are a God-send?   
Thanks a bunch,
Galofdreams

Great, excellent, and you are VERY welcome. I hope your shows go well, and that your husband recovers quickly.

Here is a vlog entry where we get to do the first show with the stage I made in Sept and october. There are a few little tips at the  beginning. I thought you might  like to see how it  worked out.

Re: PVC Puppet Stage Posted by Chris Arveson on Dec 14, 2014
There's a lot of ingenuity in that stage, particularly using the pvc clips in so many different ways. My congratulations to you, the stage looks wonderful.

Great stage set up!  Thanks for sharing the final outcome.

Hi, I recently did some experimenting to see if I could come up with an alternative to  PVC Pipe joiners. I made some in wood, and although they have not been extensively trialed, I did this  video showing you how to make them. I expect after trialing them in the  workplace we will find out  how well they work and what  idiosyncrasies they may have.


(by the way Shawn, how does one make the video show instead of just the link?)
