Hi Linda,
My mentor John Dioszegi invented a great mounting system where the female part of the tripod mount is embedded in a small piece of wood, then the wood glued to a piece of Gatorboard; this gives you a nice light base (whatever size you want) which turns with the total freedom of your tripod's universal joint.  I made a number of these (very inexpensive) mounts for students and would be happy to send you one.

If anyone would like more detailed instructions please let me know.

Hi All:
I've seen a number of setups for plein aire painting with tripods, and I wondered if anyone had, or could recall any articles on a platform device for a sketchbook that attached to a tripod head?

I don't want to use my portable french easel, or small pochade box. I have a new small and lightweight tripod, and SOME where I saw something about an attachment used as a sketchbook platform..

Any thoughts?

Thanks
Linda
