Transporting pipes and punties?

Just wondering if you have any easy/clever suggestions for building something to haul pipes and punties to the studio and back? I'm in NYC and Urban is about a half an hour walk on foot, so it needs to be relatively comfortable. A friend of mine built a case out of PVC so I'm thinking something like that, but wondering if anyone else has better suggestions.

A lightweight hand truck (or a heavy-duty luggage cart), PVC pipe, and some bungee cords and you'll be able to haul your tools, color, lunch, whatever, in addition to your pipes and punties.

Hey Ben,

I've been in that spot (though not quite that long a walk), and have found my old golf bag and push cart to work extremely well for that purpose.

I'm with bob,
Get one of those bags like Rodney Dangerfield used in Caddyshack. It would hold all your finished work too.

Maybe a fishing rod bag? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071XV9GTN...506006341&sr=1

I haven't looked into getting a locker, I'm only taking a six week class so I don't know if I'll rent enough for it to be worth it. Will definitely check craigslist for golf club bags though.

And see Caddy Shack so you know which one to use.

I want my punties to spring out of the bag on their own.

you need to put a pipe warmer in the bottom of the bag. I need pictures.

I started putting my tools in a violin case, when the collection started. Now I'm up to a full body guitar case. A double bass hardshell case is just tall enough to fit standard Steinert pipes, and they've got wheels, but dang, they're difficult to find.

So what?
So let's dance!

It's been almost 20 years since I was worrying about transporting my tools from studio to studio but I used to use a 4" pvc tube with an end cap on one end and a screw cap on the other. It had a shoulder strap so my hands were free to carry a Klein linesman tool bag for my hand tools

I had also used pvc but I soldered a copper cap and bit of pipe together that screwed on to one end of the pvc incase pipes still had any heat in then. It unscrewed so I could easily dump any glass that popped of the pipes.
I thought I was so clever! Copper fittings were cheaper 20 years ago.

Pipe case

Before glass, I did wood a bit. (Just ask my wife about all the wood tools in the garage...) More importantly, I never played golf (though I like the idea of using an old bag). So, my solution uses some bits of wood an an adjustable strap. Low cost, effective, collects most of the crack off and most importantly, looks better than a PVC pipe. I suppose not everyone would agree with that last point... For sure, it smells better if it burns!
