      1. Cut PVC to desired lengths
      (Craftsman PVC cut list below)
      8 @ 12 inches
      2 @ 48 inches
      2 @ 5-1/2 inches
      2 @ 6-1/2 inches
      2 @ 15-1/4 inches



      2. Make the base by connecting 2 12" pcs. to the ends of a three way connector, capping both ends of the 12" pcs.


      3. Connect another 12" piece to the center of the 3 way and extend another 12" piece of this with a 3 way at the end.



      4. Connect 1 more 12" piece at the end of that connector and cap the end.


      5. From the middle of the 3 way (in between the 2 12" pcs.), connect 5-1/2" piece going up vertically.



      6. Add a 3 way to this. Make sure the middle part of the 3 way is cut in half for a rest for the lower jump bar.



      7. On the top of this 3 way, connect a 6-1/2" piece vertically with another 3 way on the end. The middle of this 3 way will be cut in half for the top jump bar rest.


      8. On top of this 3 way, connect a piece 15-1/4" high going vertically and cap.



      9. Do these steps 2 for each side of the jump bar!


      10. Cut 2 pieces at 48" and place them on the upper and lower 3 ways that were cut in half.



      11. Practice jumping with a pet!
