Use a PVC Extension to Make a Gigantic Tripod

So, have you ever had a desire for a really, really large tripod, but didn’t know were to get one?  Well neither had I, but this Instructables article by Patrick Sanford provides a way to make your tripod much bigger.

giant-tripodPatrick’s method involves stacking 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe, but I would be tempted to see if I could simply slide a 10 foot piece of pipe over the legs of my existing tripod.  I guess you could even use a coupler and make it twice as gigantic, unless it started to buckle.  If you’re in need of something to base this build off of, here’s my DSLR mount from Amazon, really cheap, but quite functional for my needs.
