There are a lot of the ready made birds for sale but not too many patterns.

There is one listing on eBay that sounds like it may be okay - you can check it out:

Start with a closet flange (toilet) and build up using 4" PVC. This flange lets you use tent pegs to secure it to the ground. Prime and glue flange to first tube. If you want a place to hang a sign, use a 4" T with the small side for 2" pvc . Glue this in as well. Drill a 2" x 18-20" piece of PVC for and add cup hooks and then glue on an end cap to the tube. Continue up from the open end of the 4" T with 4" PVC and glue on a reducer bushing to fit a carriage lamp. Thread the cord through the PVC and out the bottom of the flange. Secure the lamp with screws. Attach an extension cord with a light sensor and you're done. 6 foot total height is about right for RV storage, and you can "break" the tubes at the T.

You just need to type in PVC craft birds in your search area. Tons of pages will pop up with directions on how to make these birds and many other crafts using PVC pipes.

pvcplans.com has photos of a variety of items made from PVC pipe, including a bunk bed. There are links to plans there, as well. PVC is fun, kind of like Tinkertoys for grown-ups! (06/02/2010)

Can someone help me find a website where I can find free patterns for making various items from PVC pipe? I saw beds made out of PVC pipe and would like to make some for my children.

Try this web site for bunk beds made from PVC.

pvcplans.com.

If you look to the left of the page there is a section called submitted pictures and plans, click on it. If you go through the page you will come across the bunk bed. You might have to email the gentleman who made it, but it is worth a shot. (02/24/2009)

DIY Network used to have a show called B Creative or something like that. The woman did a whole episode on PVC crafts. She made candle holders, a Christmas tree and outdoor items. You can check out diynetwork.com for the show. (02/25/2009)

At your local library they may have the PVC project book, PVC furniture book, or something similar. If they don't have it they may be able to get it from another library. (02/25/2009)

I went on the site PVC Plans and contacted the person who designed the bed. He sent me his link which gives complete instructions on how to make the bunk beds.

Can someone help me find a website where I can find patterns (free) for making various items from PVC pipe? I saw birdhouses made from 6" PVC at a craft show and also a tall bird (like a crane or egret). I would love to make them but can't find a website for any free patterns.

I don't know where there are any bird patterns but I know that http://www.familyfun.com has some PVC patterns. I think they are a basketball goal, a puppet theater, a soccer goal, etc. If you're making them to sell, these may be good ideas. (06/06/2006)

Craft Patterns Using PVC Pipe

I think I have the patterns you are describing. But free might be stretching it. These birds sets sell easily for $40-$50 for the Herons and slightly less for the egret sets. Then there are two sizes of stick birds which are very popular. I have been planning to sell these plans on the internet but haven't got set up yet. If you want to pursue this write me at charlierusty1234 AT yahoo.com. I can send pictures if you like. (09/19/2007)
