How to Build a Free Standing PVC Dummy
Finally, a guide that tells you how to build a free-standing PVC dummy (AND how to weigh it down) at an affordable price.
Most wooden dummies cost $1000, and they also come on big, bulky frames that won't fit in your apartment/house. Then you look for dummies that are built WITHOUT the frame, but guess what? They cost just as much!
You search for guides on how to build it, but it seems like every guide out there tells you how to build them only with those gigantic frames. There are none that show you how to build one that can stand on its own.
In this book, Steve Grogan provides you with everything you need to make your own dummy:
*A list of supplies
*Ideas on how to save money on the above
*Tips on how to weigh it down, and...
*Contact information if you have any questions
Grab this guide, and you will have a free-standing wooden dummy in your house in no time!

When I started looking into building my own wooden dummy, I
searched the internet far and wide to find a book or website that would show me how to do it. I needed a cost-efficient way because I didnít have $1,000 dollars to shell out for one that was professionally made.
To their credit, every resource I found did indeed provide
good ways to save on the cost of materials, but there was one
drawback to them: they didnít show you how to build a dummy
WITHOUT a massive frame on which to mount it.
However, this design presented a different problem: it was
too bulky for my living situation. What about those of us who
live in closets for apartments? There are freestanding dummy
options from the companies who sell dummies, but again, that
makes you run right back into the issue of cost.
That is why I set about writing this book. After some trial
and error, and with the help of my friend Dennis DíAsaro, Iím
now the proud owner of a freestanding wooden dummy that does NOT
require a frame and does NOT cost a fortune to make.
In the name of full disclosure, I did wind up going through
two pieces of PVC for the body. Even after I thought Iíd learned
from the mistakes on Version 1, there were still some errors on
Version 2. However, you will have the ability to avoid this
because Iím going to pass my knowledge on to you, so you can
theoretically make yours correct right off the bat.
Before we begin, I would like to dedicate
this book to Dennis, who offered his help free
of charge. That is an example of the finest in
humanity right there, and I canít say enough
good things about him.
If you have any questions, please feel free
to email me. Depending on how technical it is, I
may have to forward your inquiry to Dennis. That
means it might take longer to get a response,
but you WILL get one.
Now letís build your wooden dummy!
