Quite ingenious, Allan. Thanks for posting it.

Though that might have been "easy" for you to make, I feel quite sure that it would be beyond my limited handyman abilities to put together, let alone to find or make the parts for!

Nancy Bea,

I hope you find what you are looking for. If you don't, you might want to try attaching a nut to the bottom of a cigar box, small wooden easel box (fairly inexpensive at art supply stores) or even just a piece of masonite (I glued a 1 1/2" square piece of wood to the middle to hold the nut) that will allow you to attach it to your tripod. Not perfect, but cheap

Allan,

Thanks for the photos - my hat is off to your creative inventiveness. Very impressive!

Michele,
I know that one have to have a workplace and some tools. But the materials are cheep.

The flat metal was taken from an old stainless kitchen table, the aluminum pipes are 5/8", total lengt 60". the wing nuts from the hardware store.

The shelf and palette are made from birch plywood and varnised.

Then, of cause, you will have to buy a couple of wine bottles to your good friend the handyman

If anybody is going to try it, please ask questions, I will post additional meassures.
