Oberwerk-USA will custom-build your tripod from your choice of poplar, maple, or walnut American hardwood. Our Slip-Stop (U.S. Pat. No. 10,281,081) tripods are available in different configurations and options to work with larger binoculars, cameras, and telescopes weighing up to 40 lbs.

Other Options:

Let Oberwerk-USA custom-build a beautiful wood tripod from your choice of select American hardwoods. Our tripods feature Slip-Stop (U.S. Pat. No. 10,281,081) 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 (pecan or slate gray), maple (light honey), or walnut (dark and rich). 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.  All screws & bolts are black stainless steel.  Available in different configurations and options for use with larger binoculars, cameras, and telescopes weighing up to 40 lbs. Need a case? The Oberwerk Padded Tripod Case is a perfect fit.

    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.

    Got the tripod on Wednesday and finally got a chance to mount my scope. Could not be more please with the tripod…DM-4 mounts perfectly and the tripod itself is a thing of beauty!

    I ordered mine in maple with the eyepiece tray and rubber feet. Construction is top-notch and very attractive, and provides a very stable platform for my 5” Mak-Newt on Helix Mfg. fork mount.
