Here I have explained how to make an efficient and cheap clapper for amateur moviemakers
Step 1: Acquiring Materials
● 1" wide wooden strip of thickness 6 mm
● plastic/ acrylic sheet
● nut - bolt
● wood saw
Step 2: Preparing the Frame
● 1 X 5"
● 2 X 6"
Cut the acrylic sheet: 4x6"
Drill a hole at one end of the 5" long strip and one 6" long strip. Sand the edges of the strips to have plain rounded edge.
Step 3: Fixing the Panel
To the top of the sheet, glue the 6" long strip (the one which is not drilled) flushed with the edge. This is the horizontal edge.
NOTE: I have used acrylic because it is water proof and cam be used for a long time. In case of affordability constraints, thick cardboard can also be explored
Step 4: Fixing the Clapper
NOTE: The clapper needs to be fixed on the side where the horizontal member has been fixed.
