    I think this is the best, most versatile way of making a shade framework out of all the videos I've seen on YouTube. But, my question is this: do you glue the pipes in place or just assemble them without gluing?

    Hey there! Looking great. I'm a Peace Corps Volunteer serving in West Africa as an Agriculture volunteer. Our Hot season is coming up! I'm looking at developing a shade structure, and cost is a huge factor with the people I work with.

    I'm thinking about doing a shade structure with old mosquito nets — any thoughts? A lot of shade structures I've seen use fancy materials which aren't even close to available here. But I'm thinking that the mosquito net would give enough dappled shade.

    Thanks for any insights!

    Great idea! I'm doing container gardening and I think that besides being a sun screen, it will help keep birds out of my tomatoes! Thank you. – Mary in Texas

    No adhesive at all? They fit tightly enough to stay together just like that?
