How to create wooden pilings the Pirate Way!

Faux Wood Pilings

Materials:
4” Conduit (PVC or Fiberglass)
Liquid Nails Panel Adhesive
Monster Mud
Wood or Drywall Screws
Latex Paint Colors (depending on your taste)
Hot Glue
Plastic Spoon & Cup

Optional:
¾” Manila Rope
Barnacles (bought or cast yourself)

Step 1:
Cut your conduit to the length of your choice. I wanted to have 3 at different heights: 33", 26" & 17" tall. I used fiberglass conduit for this project because it was free.

 


Step 2:
Use screws to attach each piling together. I used 1 ½” drywall screws since I had these in my garage from another project.




Step 3:
Cut cardboard disks to use for the tops of the pilings and attach with hot glue.




Step 4:
Mix up your premade Monster Mud with the Liquid Nails Panel Adhesive at a ratio of 1:1 (1 part MM to 1 part LN). in a plastic cup. Note: My Monster Mud (Joint Compound and Latex Paint) mix ratio is 4:1.
