    I did it in a large pan in the oven. Either way it takes quite some time to get the sand hot.
    Donít forget youíre also going to need to move that hot sand. And pour it into the pipe. So youíre going to need heavy gloves. And a metal funnel. Make sure to have a helper too. Thereís a lot of stuff to keep hands on and you need to work reasonably quickly.

Plan for this one to sit on a 2 x 6 frame with eyelets or something to allow quick assembly of the tree branches using bungee cord for the tension. Iíll post the results in a couple weeks when complete.

    I made the same type base for my mega tree last year, I used red pex pipe. 2 sections and 2 connectors and I was good to go, plus it’s pretty red color for the holidays.

    What size pex? I had never thought about pex working outside before.

    I used 3/4 but I would say any size would work.
