turle dog hppyfngy thingy
I am not trying to hijack your thread, but wanted to add a variant. For those that did not read the whole turtle lady stand thread (highly recommended) there was an addition to the turtle dog stand by hppyfngy. ( post # 377) I think turtle lady got the tripod theme going, old dog added the hinge, and hppy fngy added the angled cuts. I know I left out some of the other contributors but thanks to you all.
Here is how my stand tuned out. I am still working on getting the tarp to go over the tripod. I am thinking of covering the wood with an old inner tube.
