The PVC pipe is a DIYer’s best friend. It’s one of the most common materials in home projects due to a few factors. It’s cheap, light, and considerably durable. It’s also easy to work with since you won’t need special tools to cut or bend it into the shape required by your projects.
And speaking of bending PVC pipes, there are just so many tutorials on how to bend this material into a particular shape. The thing is, most of them require a heat gun. You blow hot air into the PVC pipe and then bend it carefully. But this technique only works well with slight curves.
If you need to bend a PVC pipe into a circle, spiral, or curl, using the heat gun technique won’t do. That’s because heating the PVC pipe from the outside and doing a sharp bend will create creases or kinks. In this DIY tutorial video, you’ll learn how to bend PVC pipes into shapes you never thought possible.
