Hey Mark, great idea! If you want to properly fuse pieces of PVC together though, you really don't want any kind of glue. You want PVC cement (make sure to use that lovely purple primer first!), as it literally fuses the two pieces of plastic into one. Kind of like a weld. Very strong! Also, I recommend Schedule 80 PVC (higher schedule = greater wall thickness) for added strength, especially along the longer pieces.
