Let Oberwerk-USA custom-build a beautiful wood tripod from your choice of select American hardwoods. Our tripods feature Slip-Stop (patent-pending) leg clamps to prevent an accidental crash from a change in humidity levels. Conventional wood tripods that are left set up are prone to leg slippage due to changes in humidity. A leg clamp that was tight can loosen when humidity levels drop, causing the wood to slightly shrink- possibly resulting in a catastrophic crash of whatever the tripod is supporting. Our Slip-Stop tripod legs incorporate a visually-imperceptible reverse taper in the center section, so if a leg clamp slips due to a drop in humidity, it will re-tighten after slipping an inch or two. Simple, but effective! Not only are these tripods safer than other wood tripods, they are beautiful! Available in your choice of poplar (medium stain), maple (light stain), or walnut (dark and rich stain). The legs are laser-engraved with a length scale in 1/8″ increments, for precise height adjustments. All the non-wood components* of the tripod are aluminum (no plastic), including the adjustable spreader, with engraved leg angle markings. A stainless-steel screws & bolts upgrade is available for use in near-ocean or humid environments. Available in different configurations and options for use with larger binoculars, cameras, and telescopes weighing up to 40 lbs.

    I bought the floor model at NEAF 17, its walnut and drop dead gorgeous. Should be something my wife will actually allow me to keep in the house. It’s furniture grade and Kevin explained the new safety taper design. I’m thrilled to be one of the first owners.
