That is correct or that's how I thought it should be made. Do you have an idea for a better way to do it?So the support structure is the "T" in your sketch? And the load is the brown hanging part?

Triangles are usually better than "T"s. What kind of bracing can you add at the right angle joins? Evem better.can you design it as a triangle support or a rectangular support?That is correct or that's how I thought it should be made. Do you have an idea for a better way to do it?
Bending which way? Can you upload a 3-D perspective drawing of what you are wanting to do?Oh wait OK let me totally rephrase this. Under a bending stress which can sustain more stress an equilateral triangle, a square, or a circle assuming the height of the triangle, side length of the square and the diameter of the circle are all the same value. I think this is what I should have been asking from the beginning
I'd be very reluctant to build anything from PVC if I wanted it to last a long time. PVC is a plastic type material and deforms plastically with the passage of time. Plywood has some of the same problems, but to a much lesser degree in most situations.What I'm making is a long wing like structure for display, it will be about 10ft (3m) long and I'd like it to last a long time.
