How to Bend Your Framing Material

Using a Pipe Bender Looks Great, is Easy

There are two main ways you can make your frame — with or without a bender. Using a bender on your project will make the frame look much more professional.

But wait — a tubing bender is expensive! True, but hydraulic pipe benders are quite affordable. Therefore we suggest building your frame from schedule 40 pipe and using a hydraulic pipe bender, which can be purchased for less than $100 at Harbor Freight, Northern Tools, etc.
