Most shoulder mounts for DSLR video are strange metal and carbon fiber contraptions, which work I guess. But what if you want something a bit more organic, something that you can make yourself. Here’s a shoulder mount that was constructed from a single piece of wood.

It’s quite clever really, and more then just a shoulder mount. The device has a standard grip, and a secondary handle for adjusting the focus. The end result is a completely functional hand made shoulder mount, with a focus puller. Watch the video for a complete breakdown of how it’s made.
