Yesterday, I said I was going to rely on luck to find suitable wood sheets at the hackspace, and today I found them. The free bin at the hack space had a couple of choices, but I picked some 3/4" particleboard. Each side was cut to the same size, which would have been enough to attach two 2x4s to the sides and two more 2x4s to the top or bottom. The top piece got a hole wide enough to fit a 2" PVC adapter, which will hold that end in place during shipping. The circle was cut with a jigsaw and finished with a rasp.

The 2x4s were cut to match the sheets, but I mistakenly cut them too short. The bottom was replaced with different particleboard and drilled with a 1/4" (6mm) bit as well as a cap so they could be fastened with a bolt later. I probably won't put the pillar inside this until it is time to travel.
