The guys over at Calixte Works are at it again. This time putting together a video about their DIY version of the Spidertrax Rotating Video Dolly, all video shot and Dolly built 'inside' the local Home Depot. Crazy guys, but looks like a simple and inexpensive build for some quality rotating video footage. The rotating video dolly is quickly becoming everyone's favorite DIY project to tackle, because of the very interesting video footage you can capture with it.

As usual getting proper wheel alignment on a DIY isn't quite that simple, so in this example the common skateboard trucks were used. Skateboard mounts work great, but doesn't allow the camera to sit at the lowest possible level, especially once you add a fluid head. This is the reason the original SpiderTrax was built with a custom baseplate and the reversed axle mount.
