I did some looking around after posting about this cool Bottle Cap Tripod and found a DIY Bottle Cap Tripod version that is right along the lines of what I would make.

"Master parts list:

  • 1 1/4-20 stainless steel lock nut
  • 1 lid from a 20oz bottle

Tools required:

  • Screwdriver
  • Wrench

All parts for the project were purchased at Lowes. Total cost is $3.37, not including the Pepsi."
