Wooden Radiator Cover Plans
PVC (Poly Vinyl Chloride) pipe is a type of plastic pipework used for the conveyance of water, gas and chemicals.
Take a look at these fun and creative DIY PVC pipe projects, and learn how the masters mix tubes and connectors to create a variety of lightweight shapes and figures. This PVC pipe periscope project is super simple and gives you a chance to show and explain to kids how mirrors work. Cricket (not to be confused with Brockian Ultra-Cricket) is Australia's national sport played with a bat, a ball, and two wickets. Continuing with the sports theme, this is a basketball hoop I made so that my son could practise Basketball. Although the ring isn't strong enough to hang off, the side supports make it robust enough for normal play.
There is an "Easter egg" in the full-size image - one of our marshmallow shooters can be seen on the top shelf.
I don't own a Nintendo Wii but I did manage to get my hands on a Wiimote so that I could try out some of Johnny Chung Lee's cool projects. People often come up to me in the street and say "Dr Tom, I thought computer scientists had long beards and bony girl arms but look at you - you're so incredibly buff! A friend had given me some old UV-damaged pool noodles and I used these to pad out the ankles and calves.
The Hilbert cube is a 3D extension of the 2D Hilbert curve which is a variant of the fractal, space filling Peano curve. Here is another 4 x 4 x 4 Hilbert cube that uses connectors more like those in the proposed radiator design and plans for a 3D-printable cube. When I was an honours student back in the late 90's our research lab used Silicon Graphics hardware and the first image above of my cube reminds me of their old "bug" logo.


This project is a little late to the party - if you will excuse the pun (oh wait, wrong game!) - but I recently thought it might be fun to make a Wii-mote holder for playing Mario Kart that gives you a fixed axis of rotation so it feels more like driving.
There are a large number of Wii-mote driving accessories you can buy like the Wii Wheel or DIY versions like this one.
The pedestal actually consists of two parts - a thicker top section that looks like a sledge-hammer which has a mounting point for the wheel assembly, and a thinner lower section that is shaped like the letter 'T' (in the middle of the picture below left) which slides into the top section.
The centers of the two smaller 20mm T-pieces are cut out and glued inside the two opposite ends of the 25mm T-piece to reduce the internal diameter so that the wheel will fit smoothly and turn without too much play (for more details see the description of Coffee Grinder Puzzle Bobble which uses the same technique for its pedestal). Drill three or four holes in the lower T-shaped part of the pedestal perpendicular to the sides of the 'T' (see the left picture above).
I also glued a small section of 25mm pipe to the end of the pipe on the outside of the lower part of the pedestal and another section on the inside of the top part of the pedestal (see the picture above right).
Having built this Mario Kart Wii-mote holder my son then informed me that the 'B' trigger button underneath the Wii-mote is actually used for power sliding (although it can be set to happen automatically). The base with splayed legs is very stable and the side view below will give you an idea of the angle I used on the center support. We love plastics for what they do for us, but plastic manufacture and decay tend to pollute the environment and negatively affect our health. While heating PVC over a gas flame, keep the plastic an appropriate distance from the flame to avoid scorching the surface before the inside can warm up.
PVC pipe has its place in the construction world, but it can be used for a number of other purposes as well. From water shooter toy or marshmallow blow gun to a plant hanger or laptop stand, PVC pipe finds itself in all sorts of creative projects. The bow and arrows are super simple to make and make great party favors if you are hosting a party.


It’s easy to make quick adjustments to the slope of the pieces so that the marble goes exactly where you want it to go.
A whisper reader is like a little phone kids can whisper read into and hear their words amplified in their ears.
With basic supplies from the hardware store, a bike pump or air compressor, and a few empty plastical bottles, you can keep your kids happy for hours launching rockets 40 or 50 feet into the air. Kids can transport these Summer camp chairs easily since they’re made out of canvas and lightweight PVC pipes. Such a fun idea to teach addition and it really helps those kids that need the hands on concrete learning. While perhaps not as cool as a cereal box, Lego, MP5, or AK47 Wii Zapper, it gets the job done.
The radiator design is an 8 x 8 x 8 (3rd order) cube which uses 512 connectors like this sculpture or this 3D printed model.
The end-cap shouldn't be glued and it can simply be pushed onto the back of the wheel assembly after it is inserted into the top of the pedestal but the rest of the 18mm parts should be glued together. It comes in a variety of sizes and strengths, and inspires people to creatively refurbish them in completely different ways. In my years of experience working with PVC, I have not noticed any adverse effects on my health from being around it. This would definitely make a great project for a scout group, church group, or after school club, or just as a family activity.
