I need a bit more help. I can find the pvc pipe at Home Depot, Lowes. I can't find the caps. They have caps, but they all have rounded tops. Any other suggestions on how to glue the saucer would be greatly appreciated.
I used half inch copper pipe for mine. They have flat caps to put on the ends. I soldered ( but you can glue ) the cap to a jewelry finding of a leave( that I flattened with a hammer ) just so I'd have more surface area for the glue to stick.
Sorry I couldn't help with the PVC , but copper pipe is now cheap enough to use . ( 10' is $8.99 )
Another angle ----

Do you have a farmstore around. I got my at a farmstore call Rural King...Oh and if you paint your PVC, use a plastic primer first. It helps keep the paint on better...
I attach my teacup feeders to bud vases, then they slip over a support easily ... makes it much better for clean up too.
