DIY Tripod - Premium Project





Introduction: DIY Tripod - Premium Project

The DIY Tripod by The DIY Resource

Hi! I needed a tripod to start creating videos for my website, Since my site is dedicated to hosting my own DIY projects, I thought that this would be a great opportunity to do a project and make my own tripod.

I went through a few prototypes and finally developed a tripod which I felt replaced one that you could purchase at the store.

In this post, I just want to share my videos. More information is on my website, displayed in a much more stylized way. I've also created my own custom 'economy calculator' for the project, so that you know exactly how much you need to spend in order to create the project.

I have a video on my YouTube channel containing information on exactly what my website offers, if you are so inclined!
