Is it possible to change the circular connectors to square?

This would help me a great deal in my project.

How would you want to attach the square members (strips of wood, maybe?) to the joints? Maybe allow provision for screw holes? I can't commit to uploading new designs any time soon, but this sound like an interesting project. Wood can stand up the sun a lot better than PVC pipe for a structure like a mini-greenhouse, something I had been thinking of building some time.

I am using square PVC pipes. And then using epoxy to seal the connections. I just dont have the necessary knowledge to change the circular connectors to squares.
