Umbrella Stand

 

My wife Jean purchased an umbrella for the backyard patio and when we got it home we realized it needed a stand that was not included with the umbrella.  The stock umbrella stand required placing sandbags around it for stability, which just didn't work in our environment.  The solution was to create a T-section umbrella stand out of 2-inch ID pipe.  

The platform design is shown below, and includes a couple of wheels that permit the umbrella and stand to be moved as needed.  The one unique aspect of this design is the fact that the pipes were filled with SAND prior to final welding, which makes this a robustly stable umbrella platform!
