DIY universal light stand

What I needed was a light stand I could use anywhere, even on un-level ground. Here is the result. First I started with an old Bogen tripod that I shortened by sawing down each of the legs. Then I removed an 8ft light stand from its legs. When combined with a Vagabond mini... I smiled.

Did I forget to mention that I can use the light stand without the legs as an extendable pole?
