Picture of Simpleffective camera phone 'tripod'
This is an instructable for a simple and effective stand to use with a camera phone. It was made with scrap pieces of wood that were too small to be usable in other projects, so it is both green and cost-effective. The stand has four legs that can be adjusted to vary its height and angle. It also features a universal mount that will fit most camera phones. This project only requires the most basic tools, is very easy to build and is forgiving if you make some mistakes; it is a good beginners/learning project. You can also modify the dimensions to fit your own needs.

I am entering this instructable into the Photography Contest and Design Competition. Please feel free to vote for this instructable.

Here are some common uses:
> make videos on your own when you need an extra set of hands to hold the camera (how-to videos, etc)
> take photos with friends and family where everyone is in the picture, no one needs to hold the camera and be left out of the picture!

Required materials:
> small scrap pieces of wood
> 4 screws 1" long
> 1/4" bolt 2.5” long, washer and nut
> 2 elastic bands
> small piece of drawer liner
> multi-purpose glue

Required tools:
> saw
> drill and 1/4" drill bit
> 1/4" wrench
> scissors

Step 1: Making the four legs

1) Using the saw, cut the scrap pieces of wood into four equally sized rectangles. My legs measure 94 x 24 x 6 mm.

2) Stack all four legs on top of each other and align the edges. Using the drill and 1/4" drill bit, drill a hole through all four legs close to one end of the legs. This will ensure that the hole is in roughly the same position for all four legs.
