    I guess this can go here.

    A few months ago I got an Artograph projector. I had to put it on a table or a chair to use. I do not have much space and after seeing someone else's idea on a forum, I decided to make my own. And with this, I have crazy amount of freedom in controlling the projector. Luckily I don't work big as I can not really more the projector too far back to enlarge.


    All it is is a camera tripod, a square sheet of wood and a nut.


    What it looks like on the tripod

    The bottom of the wood

    The top of the wood with the sunken hole. I don't know what you call those kind of nuts. Was not really looking for it. I just found it in my dad's draw of crappy nuts and bolts.

    Thats a very good idea with the tripod. I dont have a projector yet but when i get one i will make myself such a mountint too.
    Im alot into photography and i have a tripod already, kinda looks pretty much the same as yours, think its a Hama Star Pro 59 as it says on the side of mine lol.
