Or you could cut 2 pieces that fit inside the tube.
One 4X8 sheet will work well with some to practice on also. If you go to HD to buy it, find a piece with mucked up edges and they will usually give it to you for $5 to $10 because they can't sell it to people that want straight edges and they end up throwing it away! I only paid $5 for a sheet at the HD near me!
that's a great deal, maybe when i go to HD, i'll accidently drop a piece while no one's lookin' while trying to put it on the cart :p j/k
Steve stated in jonny's thread that threaded rods aren't needed, but you also didn't need glue, if i did use threaded rods, maybe using all gold hardware on black, should i still glue or caulk the seems on the inside???
& yeah Ben, $75 beaners for the Assassins seems like they can't be beat, but that only last for another 2 weeks & Chad's uping them to $95.
