Intro: DIY Wood Clapper-board
In this instructable you will learn how to make a super cheap and easy Clapper-board for using in videomaking or just for decoration.
Step 1: Sketch and Measurements
I made my sketch following the measurements that my pine wood had so it looks accurate.
Step 2: Wood Cutting
I use 2 cm pine wood, so I could do the clapper without too much cuts.
Made all cuts with the help of clamps square rule and a handsaw. After a good sanding I made a little cut in the big part so it could move easily.
Step 3: PVC Sheet
Using a PVC sheet I draw the piece that I was going to use, you can draw the piece the way you want and the measurements you want too, then with the help of a rotary tool I cut them. You need two equal pieces.
Step 4: Pre-assemble
Once I had the pieces cut, with two nuts and two bolts I assembled all and I saw if it worked.
It worked perfectly.
Step 5: Paint
First of all I painted all pieces with white paint and made the draw I was going to follow. It is pretty easy and you can see it in the picture. Then took the tape away using a exacto knife in the ones I wanted to be black. After a good black paint spray this was the final result.
You can put a plastic sheet or a simple paper to write everything you want.
