New shade canopy for my work area.

Part 1: My existing canopy got pretzeled by high winds. It got destroyed.

Part 2: I decided to make a huge shade canopy out of 1" PVC pipe. It held up to 30 mph winds, but not to the weight of rain water collecting on the top. It got destroyed.

Part 3: I ordered a Coleman pop-up from Walmart. It's huge, 12' x 12' and it cost less than the materials I bought to make the PVC shade frame!

I hope this one will last awhile.
