Designed and Made releases two new products for do-it-yourself- photography and video. The products include a hand-crafted, compact and portable time-lapse dolly for capturing smooth time-lapse video, and design plans for building adjustable sawhorses.

Designed and Made, a leading custom woodworking company in Minneapolis, has released two new products for the do-it-yourself photography and video markets. The portable time-lapse dolly is the first of its kind, with a price of $599. Born out of necessity, this compact time-lapse dolly allows for approximately 18 inches of travel using a combination of drawer slides, a 1 rpm motor, and a winch to capture smooth movement time-lapse video shots.

"The compact time-lapse dolly is very unique as far as DIY video equipment is concerned," says Brian Grabski, owner of Designed & Made, and creator of the time-lapse dolly. "A friend and I have created multiple iterations of time-lapse dollies in an effort to find something portable that doesn't comprise on the quality of the movement in time-lapse shots."

In addition to the Time-Lapse Dolly, Designed & Made is now offering an instructional DIY kit for making portable and adjustable sawhorses. Adjustable sawhorses are great for filming video when an elevated track is required for dolly shots. The adjustability of the design allows you to set up a level track even if the ground you are working on is slanted or uneven. The sawhorse plans are available for purchase for $8.99 and include 15 CAD Drawings, a complete parts list, and an exploded view video for quick assembly. Everything needed for someone looking to build their own set of these unique sawhorses is included in the plans.

Both products are available for sale at
