Years ago I handcrafted these oak tripods and sold them for $400 a set. Extremely stable and with excellent vibration dampening characteristics from my patented design.
Each set took 21 pieces of wood to mill and finish, and the time factor made it too difficult for me to continue producing them. This is the prototype tripod, which I used myself.
It is very stable - I just sat on the hub with the legs fully extended with no flex, and I am 200lbs.

You can search for the reviews I received here years ago when I was making them:

Includes a Vixen hub. These legs will fit any similar hub: LXD55/75, CG5, GPDX, etc. Might also be adapted to Losmandy as well as alt/az mounts.

I would like $250 for the set.
