Functional stand for podcasting or conferencing

Cut from aluminum because that’s what I had on hand and prefer to work with, bent in a finger brake, pressed PEM hardware in a hydraulic bench press (vise also works), and painted.

Holds a prosumer photography camera, LED softlight, USB microphone, mic baffle, and a screen for notes or video conferencing. I have a design that works with a teleprompter instead, but the glass was too expensive for a “fun” project.

The extra holes are to pop a zip tie through for cable management. I don’t have it wired up here after painting, but everything should hide behind the bracket and down the monitor arm.
