The tripod is made entirely from half-inch Baltic birch plywood. Here I'm making the upper half of the legs, which are one inch white and then go to two inches wide right at the bottom. So the stopped cuts are establishing that one inch wide part. Almost every part of this build gets in eighth-inch rounder, so I'm not going to bother to mention those two of these long pieces are joined together by a 2 inch by 3-inch block on the front after gluing. I realized it didn't look very strong, so I came back and drilled some quarter inch holes for dowels.
I need a block that fits perfectly between these, so I measured the gap and then set my table saw fence accordingly. This is the metal plate from a magnetic cabinet door latch and I'm setting my blade. According to the thickness of that, once I have a slot that fits into, I cut three pieces for the three legs all at once, and this screw is to keep that locking tab from falling out moving on to the lower half of the legs. So here I'm cutting six pieces a little over one inch, white and now gluing those together in three separate legs.
Now I'm just cleaning this up to a final width of one inch. I wanted some rubber chair feet on the bottom of these legs, so I found it worked pretty well to use a chamber bit in the router table on the opposite end, I'm gluing on a one inch by two inch block which will guide the leg when you Adjust the height upper hub, I'm just drawing that on by hand. I find this faster than using paper templates. I doubled up the thickness to assemble this, I'm using 5/16 inch bolts and I'm putting a washer between each surface.
So under the bolt head between each of the wood surfaces and then another one before the nut and the tripod is pretty much complete, except for the mechanism that keeps the legs equally spaced. So now we'll make that and these get bolted to the legs. The same way as they got bolted to the top tub with washers between each surface. This is the hub for the middle of that linkage and again, it's doubled in thickness and it's the same assembly process again, and it's done as you can see.
