In 2013 when my sister introduced me to loom knitting, my main problem with the loom was the handling of an ongoing project. My wrists would ache and my work would bunch up underneath. It was so awkward for me. I thought I was going to have to quit before I even learned the skill.
Then I had an idea, a wonderfully helpful idea for an easy way to make reusable frames to fit any size knitting loom: pvc pipe, pvc joints and Ponytail Bobbles
The PVC Pipe is 3/4 inch.
I can make the legs any length I need. I use the stand like a lap tray.
When my knitting project starts getting long, I put a trash bag over the stand and secure it with tape to the frame.
I shared my pvc frame idea with my sister. She loved it and has been using it too ever since.
And there you have it, one more thing that helped make my loom knitting much more enjoyable.
I hope it helps some of you all too.

I do not glue the stands together.
I don’t use adhesive on the pipes nor couplings.
The reason I don’t glue the pipes and couplings together is that I’m constantly using different size looms and can’t afford to dedicate one stand per each. Nor do I have the space to store them.
For my use, there’s enough suction, when the pipes are pushed securely in to the couplings, to hold them together.
I’ve not had a problem with the pipes/couplings coming apart when I use them.
The suction isn’t tight enough to hold them together forever.
From time-to-time, I check the joints and pipes to make sure they’re still snug, if they feel loose I push them back together.
If you want to dedicate a specific stand to a specific loom for all-time, then gluing it together may be something you might want to consider.
