Simple/Cheap Tripod


A tripod can be handy for taking pictures of projects, but good ones are too expensive to leave laying around for casual use, and cheap ones can be difficult to use, due to their cheap telescoping legs. The one shown here cost almost nothing to make, and is sturdy enough for my purposes. The triangular hubs were cut from scrap 1/2” plywood on the CNC router, and the “1x2s” (actually .75”x1.5”) were ripped from a 2×4 that cost less than $3.
