Wine Cork Tripod




About: I'm a Mechanical Engineer who loves making stuff!! Let's build something together!!

This is a quick and easy Instructable for making a fun little tripod out of your wine bottle and cork!  Big thanks to my buddy John for the inspiration!!

Here are the supplies you'll need:
* A wine bottle
* A cork
* 1x 1/4-20 x 1.25" socket head cap screw or any other suitable 1/4-20 thread screw (standard tripod threading)
* 10 minutes of your time

Here are the tools you'll want to have:
* A power drill
* Some drill bits, 1x narrow for your pilot hole, 1x medium to catch the threads of your 1/4-20 SHCS and 1x large drill for the SHCS countersink.
* An allen wrench to tighten the screw inside the cork!

I made it at the Tech Shop in San Francisco, CA.  You can build your dreams there too!

    It's a mono-pod (single point of attachment, with a single leg).
