«»
Using three 1x2s as legs, form a tripod. They should intersect about 6 inches from the top (like a tepee). Screw the legs together at the point of intersection with #8 2¼-inch wood screws. Wrap rope around the point of intersection, concealing the screwheads. Attach eye hooks to the tripod legs about 4 inches down from the point of intersection. Paint the tripod with black spray paint.
