Cheers everybody. I want to build a boom arm for my workshop. I have watched several videos, read several build threads etc. and arrived at the drawing below. The question I now have is: Do you think I could cut material from the long holders in the form of holes or cutouts or whatnot to make it lighter without losing stability? Thickness of the wood will be 18 or 22 mm. Any thoughts and ideas are appreciated.
He does it a little differently than I have planned, but in general the idea is taken from this thread DIY Fully Articulating Boom Arm you can make to use with Festool products.
