Lee Mack the Tripod Rack

Lee Mack the Tripod Rack was created for the first episode of DIYSTV as a solution to the problem of tripods being stacked unsafely and inconveniently against the back wall of the studio.

The rack was built by Edwin Barnes, Katherine Bell, Tom Lee, Hui-Ling Phillips, Sam Willcocks and Kenric Yuen over the course of two days - including time taken to 'carefully' plan and design.

YSTV made a fool of themselves at the local B&Q, using a trolley as a dolly cam and making a lot of inappropriate jokes about screws and wood before walking back to the studio with a bundle of 2m wood planks.

This project also required a trip to Screwfix to acquire, among other things, a belt sander.

Concerns were raised that the tripod rack would fall over due to the weight of the tripods but so far it has proven to be surprisingly sturdy.
