We didn't clamp the caps on the bottom. We just weighted them with lots of MDF sheets and whatever else would fit on top lol

The top caps were clamped cross-wise. It's solid enough that I can stand on it and that's good enough for me lol
Oh, duh. Trying to control a 5-6' piece of tubing steady while rolling would be damn near impossible.

My own trial and error probably would have had me running a string around the tube and marking it. Break out the jigsaw and pray.
