DIY PVC Skater dolly (Table Dolly)

Construction instructions of DIY Photography: www.diyphotography.net/diy-pvc-table/skater-dolly-for-vid...

 

$12 in hardware store bits & pieces, 1 old skate from the basement and a tripod head borrowed from an old tripod. My Labor-day, afternoon, quick, DIY project. It doesn't look very pretty but it works well enough with anything from my tiny camcorder to my 5D.

 

Some people asked what this kind of dolly can be usedf or - here's my first attempt:

If you want to see how this is constructed and you're familiar with Sketchup I put a model into the 3D Warehouse that you can examine: sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=de9aa3ed7eacb...

 

If you don't know Sketchup I am writing a "how to" for a popular DIY Photography website that will be available soon. In the meantime, here's a teaser construction diagram: www.flickr.com/photos/martintaylor/4976156382/
