Balcony railing clamp


Just something I'd designed to mount all kinds of things on my balcony. Utilizes laser-cut plywood and threaded rods for generic support structure, and 3D-printed part(s) to mount specific devices. Right now there's only one, and it's an action cam style mounting bracket (think GoPro and numerous clones).
