Carrying a four-foot (1.2m) segment of 4" PVC made it clear that there was a lot of inertia in the cylinder and spinning would demand a sturdy platform. Existing parts, like Christmas tree holders, camera tripods, and umbrella stands were considered but their cost and viability meant that anything usable would be too expensive and anything cheap would be too flimsy.

Some planning was done to make a sturdy holder from 2x4 lumber. It would have four leveling feet and a 5/16" (8mm) slot in the vertical portion. Making the hole in the top would be accomplished by using a pair of 2x4s screwed together, but they would have a shallow saw groove in the facing sides so they would form a pilot hole when pressed together. It would still need a long drill bit to make it round and the correct diameter.
