I’ve been using my IPhone a lot to take pictures and it does a pretty good job, So i’ve been wanting to make something to attach it to a regular camera tripod and I came up with a really simple solution that works great. I used a small threaded brass insert on the bottom block of wood for the mounting screw on the tripod to thread into, but only screwing it half-way into the insert. I used some quarter inch threaded rod with a wing nut on top to form a simple clamp with the upper block of wood. The upper block just has a 1/4 inch hole drilled through it so it can move up and down, but the block is thick enough to keep it straight. I gust cut a couple of matching grooves the thickness of my phone. So you just slide the phone in the slots and tighten the wingnut. Works like a charm!
