Hi there! I'm new to this forum and i want to share good things with you that I created for my GoPro camera.
I was looking on the internet to buy some tray mount, but guess what? The price for low quality one is around 40$ and for high quality prodacts is 60-110$. And I decided to make myself one, to look like professional.
Step 1: What You Need
Here we go what you need:
- 4mm Poplar Plywood (lighter than beech one and easier to cut)
- 4 M6 or 1/4" nuts
- 2 M6 x 20 or 1/4" maschine screws
- 2 bycicle handles (maybe some quality ones)
- PVC pipe 20mm or 3/4"
- More PVC stuff: 90° joint and 2 end-caps
- Some rubber
- Spray paint (I prefer matte finish)
- Wood glue
- Free time and be creative
*I have already made handles completely
Step 2: Designing Layout
First I started with designing mount in CorelDraw.
Step 3: Let's Start
Next I got scalpel into the hands and cut the printed layout and placed it on the plywood and than cut the plywood.
Step 4: More
Here is how it looks like with first coat of paint and then second coat. I have made a glossy finish in the middle of tray for the GoPro sticky mount with transparent varnish.
Step 5: And More
Did some drilling and mounting the handles.
Step 6: And More
Then I made wooden support for tray and painted in black and glued some rubber for better grip.
