    Making a tail stand

    Hi mers, I need a better method of storing my tails now that I have another silicone tail on the way and I've seen that other mers have made PVC drying stands with success but I'm wondering what would be the best dimension of PVC to use since I want the stand to be sturdy as silicone tails are heavy. I've always considered myself to be industrious as I always have some sort of project in the works.

    I'd love to hear what suggestions you may have.

    I made a pvc stand. After having it break several times, I made a new one out of iron water pipe.

    I've got a 4x4 block of wood across the top of a shower stall and a rigged up PVC pipe hanger and a chain that can hang it up while I wash it.

    It is lighter than my silicone tail (the same one I am wearing in my avatar photo). A video that someone else made that shows almost exactly what I built:
