Instructions

  1. 1

    Mark two PVC pipes and cut them into two pieces: one 4-foot piece and one 6-foot piece. Mark and cut two more pieces, creating one 2-foot piece and one 8-foot piece.

  2. 2

    Secure one 2-foot piece and one 8-foot piece together using the tee connector. The 2-foot piece should be placed in the front to secure the goal post. Repeat the same step to create the left side of the base.

  3. 3

    Take two tee connectors and join both of the sides together with a 10-foot piece of PVC pipe to complete the base.

  4. 4

    Connect one 4-foot piece with one 6-foot piece, using a tee connector, to serve as the left side of the upright. Repeat the same steps to create the right side of the upright.

  5. 5

    Connect the two uprights with the remaining 10-foot piece of PVC pipe to make the crossbar. Connect the 10-foot piece with the uprights using two more tee connectors. Congratulations, you have created your very own football goal post!
