On October 14th, 2011, I picked up my iPhone 4S at 8AM. It was the best 3 hours that I wasted waiting in line. Ever since I have been shooting videos and pictures with it! Even with a DSLR at hand I prefer to use my iPhone. With the new 8mp camera, 1080p video recording, and its amazing camera quality, It's great! However, I really wanted to be able to use a tripod to shoot photos and videos.
Now, I could have ordered one on eBay, however, I'm very impatient, so I decided to make my own!
Please vote for me in the HACK IT, POCKET SIZED, AND 4TH EPILOG CHALLENGE. THANK YOU!
I strongly recommend you only use this with a case on your phone.
Every picture was taken with an iPhone 4S.
Here's a video that has footage from my iPhone with its tripod mount: Its FUN!

For the coat hanger wire, you can use what ever thick wire you have laying around... make sure it is sturdy and very hard to bend.
The block of wood doesn't have to be very large, 1 inch square is perfect. You can also substitute other things for your mount.
