Camera sliders that are sold commercially are a bit expensive for someone who’s on a budget. This is what Derek Mellott had in mind when he created a simple, effective, and very affordable DIY camera slider. Anyone with a decent DIY experience will have the whole project done in about an hour. Before you get down and dirty, grab first the five IKEA items — worth exactly $28.48 — listed by Mellott. Also, be ready with tools like your drill, drill bit, clamp or vice, and saw.
