Camera sliders are extremely useful tools for anyone who has a camera. But did you know you could make one yourself?

With the right tools and expertise, anything is possible. So watch this video to learn how you too can make your own camera slider.

Start with a roll and cut it into two smaller pieces. Make a round hole in one of the pieces and glue the other piece inside it.

Next, cut three pieces in cardboard. Two with wholes in them and one with two dashes.

Stick the two pieces with wholes on the side of the piece with dashes and insert in them your roll tube so that the open roll is facing up.

Take two round pieces of cardboard and stick them on the two sides of your new roll tube. Take a square piece of cardboard and stick it on the cardboard piece with the two dashes.
