Sand the ends of all PVC pipes.
Apply a bead of PVC glue into the four lower flanges of a 1-inch 5 way PVC joint, leaving the top flange unglued.
Insert an 8-inch PVC pipe into each glued flange, wiping away any excess glue with a paper towel.
Glue four 1-inch PVC end caps onto the other sides of the pipes.
Glue a 5-inch PVC pipe into the joint's fifth flange to create the wrapper's stand.
Slip a 1 1/2-inch 3-way T Joint onto the 5-inch pipe, with the side flange facing out. It should be loose, allowing it to rotate freely.
Place a 12-inch PVC end cap facedown on a table, like an upside-down bowl.
Place a 1-inch PVC end cap faceup onto the center of the 12-inch cap's bottom.
Drill a quarter-inch hole through the center of both caps.
Thread a quarter-inch bolt through the larger end cap and smaller one. Tighten the nut within the 1-inch end cap to join the two together.
Place the 1-inch end cap onto the 5-inch pipe. This creates a 12-inch bowl resting on the PVC stand. Do not glue the cap; you will want to remove it periodically to tighten the nut.
Glue an 18-inch piece of 1 1/2-inch PVC pipe and a 6-inch piece into opposite ends of a 4-way joint.
Glue a 1 1/2-inch elbow joint to the other side of the 6-inch pipe.
Glue a final 6-inch piece of 1 1/2-inch pipe into the other side of the elbow joint. This completes the arm that will hold the roll of shrink wrap.
