I’m hoping this is going to be self explanatory. I will add a few comments here and there!
First I cut the half circles with a router. Each stick of wood is 1” X 1/2”. That way when joined together I’ll have a 1” X 1” square….
Next I cut a slot down the middle with a 1/4” straight bit on the router table….
Now to round the corners over….again using the router table…..
The next part is making the cap to fit on the top of the leg. This is what will connect all 3 legs together at the base…..
....and gluing it to the leg…..
I didnt take many pics of this next part. A 1/2” dowel fits into the leg. This allows the legs to extend out and make the tripod taller. I attached a knob into the dowel that I can tighten to the height that I want…...
Next I’ll be making the base to attach the legs to….
BONUS: Glad you stuck around for the end huh? Here are some wild/organic black raspberries I picked tonight! Out in the woods I live by, there is a humongous raspberry patch. I didnt even put a dent in it….MMMmmmmm…
-- Hey you dang woodchucks, quit chucking my wood!!!!
