I inherited a big north-african copper plate from my grandfather, and I like to use it as a coffee table when I have a drink with my friends. So I need something to put it on, but it has to take as little place as possible when not in use. This is why I made this quick and easy foldable tripod.
Step 1: Very Few Components
I used an old curtain rod that I sawed into 3 equal pieces. You could also find old stool parts, or anything that is about 2 feet long.
You will need some string or leather link (even a thin chain).
Step 2: A Little Drilling
One rod should have holes large enough to hide and hold a string knot.
Step 3: Cut the String
Cut the string so you get 2 pieces:
- long piece: about twice the length of a rod
- short piece: about 7 times the width of a rod
Step 4: Tie
Step 5: Customize
Paint, tint, sculpt, glue: let your imagination create... (mine was rather lazy!)
