DSLR/Camcorder DIY – How to Make a Skater Dolly Using PVC Pipes!

Ever since I started hanging (I mean actually visiting them at job sites) out with my plumber friends at Sewer Specialists, they’ve been teaching me awful a lot including how easy it is to get some PVC piping together.   Well, here’s a cool skate dolly you can use for those action reels you are working on and save a bunch of money over retail.
