After having some issues with camera placement in my shop while video taping I came up with a camera mount that I can place almost anywhere on my walls. Using a spare tripod and some hardware I developed a French Cleat Camera Mount. This video also includes the steps I took to develop the project and a demonstration of the camera on the mount.

If you have questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you.

Nice. You might want to add a small front piece that covers the cleat that is attached to the wall. Currently there is nothing to prevent the entire cleat from rotating. I know from experience.

Have your say...
