  • Creating a Lemonade Stand Using PVC

    DIY PVC Lemonade Stand Main Image

    Nothing says "summer" like lemonade! As a child, there are few better ways to make summer memories than by setting up a lemonade stand and serving delicious, ice cold refreshment to your neighbors! The lemonade stand is a tradition that has stood for generations as a great way for young people to learn about work ethic and business basics. Making lemonade is easy. What isn't always so easy is making the stand itself. Building a stand out of wood can be difficult and expensive, as it requires sawing, screwing, and nailing. PVC pipe is a fantastic alternative to wood, so why not make a DIY PVC lemonade stand?

    What makes PVC a good building material are its weight, price, and simplicity. Its hollow, yet strong design allows PVC to be lightweight, so transporting your DIY lemonade stand will be a cinch. PVC is also a fraction of the cost of wood boards. A 10-ft. section of piping will only cost a few dollars, depending on the diameter. Screws and nails are not needed to make connections with PVC. You don't even need PVC cement in many cases, since PVC pipe is designed to fit snugly into fittings.

    These three projects are all great methods for building a DIY PVC lemonade stand. We have chosen three projects of varying complexity and size, so you should be able to find something just right for you! Full instructions are linked, as are the PVC parts required for each project. Happy building!
