I had some short lengths of 20mm conduit left over from another Christmas project and with not much to do on a cold Sunday morning I thought that I would make a new star for the house. I’ll give it a squirt of paint and cable tie pixels to it. It was cheap and easy to make and should look good when finished2017-05-30 16.00.53.jpg 2017-05-30 16.01.14.jpg 2017-05-30 16.00.24.jpg .

I used a clear adhesive that is mainly used to glue acrylic, it works as well as normal PVC glue which I had run out of.

Excellent thanks for that. So that would put your node tips at about 50mm apart on the star?

Reason for the question is I am looking to make some spinners and I like the idea of not drilling but cable tie them as you have done.
I stretched my centres to pretty much as far as they could go which is around 70mm

you will have no problems with 50mm

After I cable tied, I squeezed a little clear silicone under each node to make sure they stayed in place
