These are the fittings used in most projects. They can
be purchased in the plumbing section of hardware
stores and plumbing supply outlets. Furniture grade
PVC fittings can be purchased from the companies
listed on the Sources and Resources page.


90-degree Ells. Note the difference between the two. For uniformity in your project, get all the same fittings. Too, different brands can have different stop depths which will make your measurements off a bit.

45-degree Elbows. Again, notice the difference. The top Elbow is shorter than the bottom one, which can throw your measurements off, thus making your project out of whack. Make sure you use the same fittings for your project.

PVC Fittings

The Slip Tee is Useful for Making Hinges and Whatever Else You Can Imagine. The Tee Rotates Around the Pipe.

These are Furniture Grade Internal PVC Fittings. To My Knowledge, They're Available Only at Available Plastics (apiplastics.com). The Odd-Looking Thing at the Bottom is a Chaise Lounge Positioning Bracket.
