Simple tripod

I needed a simple tripod. I was looking for simple ideas, but unfortunately i didn't find anythink intresting. I start thinking and make something like this:

The legs are made from pieces of timber. The same mount are 3 pieces of flat bar with cross 20x4 and a length of about 50mm. First drilled holes, then heating burner and turned 90 degrees. The legs screwed M6 screws, plates were screwed with an M10 screw.

Accelerometer MMA7455
