PVC pipe is great for building random creations. In this Instructables Article, Sooraj Bagal shows us how to make a PVC pipe “tripod.” Apparently for under six dollars.
The design is simple, consisting of 3/4 inch diameter pipe, 4 tees, and 4 endcaps. You’ll need to drill one of the tees out to accept a 1/4 – 20 bolt, which you can lock down with a nut. To use this with a GoPro, you’ll need a GoPro Tripod Mount (Amazon), but most other cameras should work any other accessories.
This is a cheap, simple, and possibly useful design. If, however, you want a gigantic PVC tripod that I have no idea what it would be used for, check this PVC monstrosity out!
