In this video, Andy Glass with Glass Impressions will take you step by step to building a motorized camera dolly. I wanted to build a camera dolly that would give me the ability to shoot panning shots in the workshop. The same shots kept showing up at the table saw, jointer, and planer. I needed something to change it up! I thought this different camera shot would add a lot of variety to my shots.

Glad I have followed you! This is really nifty. The electronics seem manageable as well.

Wheels were bought locally at around $15 for 4 of them. I included links for the parts… Amazon has them.

Nice project!

Heads up for the frugal LJ’s … get 10 skateboard wheels for +/- $5.00 at your local goodwill.

For a similar project I bought a pair of inline skates at a thrift shop for $4. That got me 8 wheels with 2 good quality ball bearings each.
