Introduction: Magnetic Beer Bottle Camera Stand
Here is a very simple and easy to make camera stand out of beer bottle.. It also can be set on a fridge door or any other metal surface.
Step 1: Grab a Ice Cold Beer! ..and Some Other Stuff
And Drink while you gather supplies!
Beer Bottle with twist off cap.
A bolt (that will fit in the camera)
2 nuts (that fits on bolt)
1 Circular magnet slightly bigger then the width of the bottle
Hot Glue Gun
Step 2: Modify the Cap
Drill a hole through the center of the beer cap. Use a vice to hold the cap for safety, and always wear eye protection while using a drill.. You will want the bolt to fit snugly.. and not loose.
Use a screwdriver to adjust the size of the hole if its just alittle too small... If its too loose, you may want to start over.
Use the file to smooth the top of the cap.
Run a nut down the bolt and slide through the cap.
Now install the other bolt Leaving a little gap at the end of the bolt about 1/3 of an inch so it will fit snug on in the camera.
Using two wrenches tighten the two bolts as tight as possible.
Step 3: Install Cap and Glue on Magnet Base
Clean both surfaces and make sure they are dry.
With glue gun hot, apply glue on the bottom rim of the bottle and in the middle.
Hold a moment and let it cool and harden before moving.
Step 4: Mount Camera
Mount camera and test out on the fridge. I have complete faith mine wont fall off.. but better be safe and put a pillow down when side mounting it, so you cant blame me when u knock it off!
