DIY [#36] ~ Tripod Holder for Rhino Rack Pioneer Plaform–Rubberized/Flaked, 11/20-21

The first three pictures taken with my iPhone X.

Flex Seal is especially challenging. It is stiff-not easily brushed smoothly onto wood, regardless of prep, and it is very slow drying–48+ hours. OTOH, with the color flakes on the black rubberized surface is compelling and photographs well. It’s functional and will serve me well in photography. I plan to trim the edges of the base with corner molding and put rubber pads on the feet.

Stay tuned…

Now sealing for Rubberized Flex Seal Coating

This will be black, maybe with Color Flakes. It’s purpose is to hold the tripod shown on the Pioneer Platform on the top of my van. I will use 4 C-Clamps to attach the board to the rack. The finishing will probably take at least 2 more days. Stay tuned…


DIY [#35] ~ Camera Stand Clamp for Rhino Rack Pioneer Plaform, 11/18

One way I can use the van in photography and stay warm [or cool] as the case may be…

I plan to cover the metal with rubberized paint. I am using a rubber pad beneath the PlatyPod Max and pads on the inside of the slotted flat bars. The was a quick and easy DIY–all done but the finishing.
