About the Carrier Tube
The Carrier Tube was created out of a need for my sister to carry her landscape designs to client meetings.
The Carrier Tube is a customizable carrying tube. It can be customized in width and length using a calculations chart. Only basic addition and subtraction are required.
The structure is achieved by using a mailer tube or some other tube like item, many of which can be found around the house or at the store.
From professional use, to storage, to cosplay, the ideas are endless! And as you can see from the pictures - we've been a bit silly with it!
Varies based on your customization.

Choosing a Tube Structure
I like to use mailer tubes. I’ve included some links below. That said, since this pattern details how to customize to your tube size, you can often find items around your house or at the hardware store that will also work. Any straight cylindrical container will work. I do not, however, recommend anything smaller than 3" (7.6cm) diameter tubes due to turning. Mailer Tubes are readily found at post offices, stationary supply stores, and online. I recommend 3" x 36" (7.6cm x 91.5cm) or 3” x 37” (7.6cm x 94cm). Note: Check your finished measurement! Mine said 36" but are 37" as they are measuring inner cap to inner cap.
Circumference: The enclosing boundary of a curved geometric figure, especially a
Diameter: A straight line passing from side to side through the center of a body or
figure, especially a circle or sphere.
