    Two alternatives for quicky fabs: 1×1″ galv perf bars, keeklamps. The perf bars can be arranged to make a vertex like a cube would have and bolted together. KeeKLamps bolt steel pipes together. One can look ‘em up on the interweb.

    And don’t forget the PVC High-Powered LED light!

    CPVC is another choice for construction, it is more rigid than PVC, due to higher polymerization, different plasticizers, or something. This material is typically grey in color.
    Copper tubing is a wee bit more expensive to use, but can be aesthetically superior.
    Earth firsty types, such as myself, need to consider that PVC is made from vinyl chloride, a highly toxic organic gas. This consideration must be balanced against the environmental cost of other methods. Certainly, mining damages the earth as well. Chrome, a material used in stainless steel, is of growing concern, especially in its yellow hexavalent form. PVC cement often contains tetrahydrofuran, a powerful carcinogen. Be sure to use adequate ventilation/respiration. Zinc used in galvanizing is also a matter of concern –cheers! and happy fabbing!
