Tried a quicker way to build a pipe load. The pipe loads built previously took some time to construct and paint. I picked up a box of black straws off Amazon with no stripes or other decorations. I cut some strip wood, used a green marker to colour the wood, and the fine mini black elastics were used. The banding actually hold the loads together, no glue was used. It took less then 5 minutes to put together, and I don’t have to gingerly handle the loads. You could literally drop them, and there’s no damage....
