Window openings and door closures are on a par - we paste the edges of the door on the sides - then we take thin tubes, which I twisted with a wooden skewer, which can be purchased at any sewing store - we cut the tubes along the height of the opening and glue them together to glue to the door opening and so that they do not tumble inside, glued inside with adhesive tape, we also glue the window opening - we cut thin tubes and paste them into the opening like this - I used double-sided tape - and windows and curtains can be made as anyone wants - I I wired it like this and inside it, too, taped it with scotch tape.

Tripod made of ordinary rope

The simplest tripod is made of rope and bolt. Please note that the bolt is needed with an inch thread (we have adopted a metric thread), there is not everywhere but you can find it if you want, some even do it for 50 rubles to order. I think such a device should be in every photographer in a bag. Previously, I had a problem with the rope, it was constantly tangled, I found a solution to this problem, which guarantees that you will always be comfortable using a homemade tripod and you will not look silly when untangling the rope.
