Im luck enough to have some heavy, thick cardboard tubes from work to use, but have also use, the free triangle box thats free from the Post Office and just cut one side off some, stands up and holds alot of arrows too!!!
I've never made one, but I've seen racks similar to Hoythunters only instead of drilling all those holes, they used gridded drop cieling light covers. I think you can pick them up at HD for a few bucks or so each. You'd prob have to cut them down to size somehow, but I bet it sure beats all that drilling. - Just a thought.
If you just want to store them and not display them try using sara plastic wrap. I wrap it around the top and bottom a few times and it seem to hold them together. I then put them in the closet till I need them.
I used the 3 inch PVC with end caps glued. I mounted them to the back of a cabinet with screws through the back wall into the cabinet. It is off the floor and arm level. I identified the arrow spine and weight per inch. Was able to group identical weights together. Helps.
