Couldn't decide if this should be under craft or Photography so put it in both.
My 12 yr old son was reading Boy's Quest April/May 2009 copy, which is the Photography issue.
In it they had an idea to use bolts, washers, wing nuts, nuts, magnifying glass and wood to make a camera able to take macro photos. He took it a step farther and made it so his can tilt and angle.
Here it is...
If you want to make one you will need.
1 board any size; he used 11 X 13;
solid maple scraps
1 carriage bolt 5/16 length 6 to 10";
1 5/16, 2 " long bolt;
1 5/16, 1 1/2" long bolt;
5 - 1" washers;
2- 3/4" washes;
4 wing nuts to fit your bolt;
1 locking washer;
1 5/16 nut
1 camera to try it out. A point and shoot is fine.
Here a are his results. First a normal photo
And then Macro.
If you need better information just holler.
