    Since a couple of people have asked, here is a template for making the jig I used for my PVC mini trees.
    Pictures of the trees and jig can be seen in post #6.

    Print at 100% (no scaling) on 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper.
    Cut out and trace onto the wood for your jig.

    Reading through this, I guess I went uber-simple. I used 1 (they come in pairs) plate from a Boscoyo ChromaPole set as the topper, a 3ft long piece of 1/2" EMT (w/ a 1/2"-3/4" PVC shim) and 6x lengths of regular Boscoyo Megatree strip. Attached the mounting strips to the ChromaPole plate at the top, and use tent stakes at the bottom. A 3ft piece of rebar in the ground holds it up. At 18 pixels per strip, I get 108 nodes per 180-degree tree. It's a mini-Megatree.
