Rolling Tripod Base You Can Push Around, from Instructables

Here’s a rolling tripod base design from Instructables.com which could be a very good exercise in wood carpentry at the very least. Who needs a tripod base when your tripod is light enough to be moved around? Heck, I can pick up my tripod with a thumb and an opposing finger and move it quickly to where I want it.

But when your tripod is big, with a B-I-G ballhead to match and a 5-pound camera on top of it, you will need something like this. Some wood, 3 wheels and a few screws are needed to build this project.

When you’re done, you’ll have a tripod that you can roll around easily. Instead of plywood for the base, you can use good old solid wood for better strength and stability (But I like how the author geeked up his geometry!)
