The fold up tree frame is 10 feet tall. It is a work in progress. I would have liked the henge plate to be aluminum, but plywood was easier to work with.

That's very clever and creative! Nice job -- thanks for sharing! I'm sure a lot of others will borrow...er...steal your idea!

I may be missing something, how are the poles attached at the top of the tree?

It seems that eye hooks are for hooking the lights up? or is that how the posts attach?

Maybe a closeup of the poles attached would be available?

Anywho... Looks GREAT!

The "I bolts" are what hold the conduit/poles.

How big of diameter conduit do you recommend using for this project?

I used 1/2 inch conduit 10 feet long. It looks like it is staying nice and straight. :D The henge plate is 5 inches wide with 3/4 of an inch notched out. The notches are marked off at 72 degrees.
