Goaded by 14 day delivery times, I decided to embark on this transient project. It took no more than 20 minutes, with a nominal sum of $0 exactly!

Worked well with faraway objects; so I’m really looking forward to testing it later (hopefully).

How well does the plywood straight cut work in the finder shoe bracket ?

I thought it's necessary for the trapezoid shape for consistent mounting every time , couldn't cut that angle on my jigsaw and didn't proceed.
