Photography ~ Gear/Kit–Manfrotto MT055XPRO3 [DIY Shelf–Evolving], 12/29

Well, the tripod shelf will be of 1/2″ plywood.

I’ll call my early work yesterday [and featured above] a prototype–actually, the plastic triangle is serving as a template for the shelf I’m building. I cut 2 triangles from 1/4″ plywood and glued them together–cross-grained. This should give me sufficient rigidity to hold a 20# weight if I choose to anchor the tripod. camera-rollI sanded each side and the edges of the plywood; although, I want to use an edge guard of some type. It has to be flexible for the curves at the corners. I will probably cut holes 1″ and larger for associated gear. To finish the shelf, as much as I love the grains of wood, I think I’ll paint it Marine Orange [to match SOLOSHOT3]. The glue is to set for 24-hrs. before I sand it some more and start finishing the wood. Stay tuned…
