    I LIKE IT!

    Two questions:
    1. From the picture, it looks like you used schedule 40 PVC for the chambers. Am I seeing it right?
    2. Did you leave any space between the PVC tubes and the front plexiglass?

    Thank you!

    Yes... 3 different sizes (2", 1 1/2" & 1 1/4"). Most of the pvc does make contact to the front of the plexi. I did leave a few tubes about a half inch shy just to add variety and see what how it would affect the look. It actually makes a cool star effect on the shorter ones.

    This turned out great. I am looking to do a similar project on a different platform. If you don't mind, where did you obtain the pvc sheet for the frame/cover? I am having a difficult time tracking down good material for the job. Thanks.
