I am part of the Pinhole Project at Burning Man.  We photograph the art at Burning Man using pinhole cameras the size of 55 gal barrels. I am building a tripod to hold the cameras that was inspired  from a ski lift tower pulley.  I have been throwing around ways to hold our cameras, but traditional designs did not suit the need.  I am building two spoked wheels with an axel between the two - the lift tower pulleys are the hubs of the wheel.  The cameras can be attached to the the wheels and allow rotation of the cameras in two different planes.  As I  write, I am finalizing the drawings for the CNC plasma cutter and will start production this weekend.  I am an architect by trade and have a good skill set to pull this off.  Thanks for your support.  Below are some images of the design.
