    I’m gonna build a skid blind out of scrap pipe and chemical tote cages. I was wondering how I should make the skids I think it’s 3” pipe I considered attaching two together to make the skid wider. Just looking for some opinions.

    Went to the scrap yard today 200 bucks later. I decided to go with some 4” thin wall pipe I found.
