It uses interchangeable 15mm rods and is height adjustable. There are quite a few adjustable universal base plate systems already available unless you really feel the need to cobble something together out of bits and pieces.

The C300 camera base to rod height is 85mm, that is level with the top of the plate.. so that design would work
The Scarlet/Epic is (around) 96 mm, so the rods need to sit 96-85, 11mm above the camera plate
The item allows the rods (short) to go above the camera plate height, I guess at least 11mm above as it lists the item as compatible with scarlet.. http://woodencamera.corecommerce.com...Baseplate.html

The rod clamps can flip to the underside of the plate compared to how it is shown. Then the whole unit can be flipped over so that the rods now ride high. I think that's how it works, although I have yet to use it this way myself.Mitch Gross

The Universal Baseplate from Wooden Camera is not compatible with the RED cameras.
It looks and probably performs the same thing as the Oconnor Universal Baseplate. At the same price too.
So, I don't know what I'll end up doing.
If I go with my original plan as to go with the Zacuto Studio Baseplate for the Scarlet, and mount the rod riser upside down, Id have to make sure that when I attach the Z-Spacer on top of the baseplate that the rods will be at the correct/good height for a DSLR, or other cameras. Especially when I will be using Cine lenses like the Red Pro Primes
If not, I'll probably end up getting one of the Universal Baseplate systems for small-medium sized cameras, and for the Red get a rod riser piece attached to the front, or get a second baseplate for them.
I heard that Redrock is coming out with a baseplate that is compatible with DSLR's and the Red's. So, ill see what that is about. Maybe that'll be good? Saw it on YouTube, but, now that I look at the product over and over, it doesnt have rear rods. And I dont think it can work with smaller DSLR's.
