Brian Grabski (http://www.designedandmade.com) and I (http://www.joshuavp.com) collaborated on this pretty aweseom timelapse dolly that not only goes in a straight line, but also on a curved track. Everything on the dolly has been custom made and houses all my components(intervolometer, battery, viewfinder, servo, and camera). It also comes equipped with a means of carrying the contraption. We spent the majority on the emphasis of the contraption, not on the rails, meaning the rails can be straight, curved, in a S, or whatever. The arm of the dolly is adjustable as well as all the wheel bases(they spin 360). Anyways, the speed of the motor is variable too. Anyways, please check it out this link to view a blog post on the project as well as my professional portfolio site (I am a flash developer and a videographer).

Looking good, I like that you used wood for it.
Do you have any pictures of it on the track and/or the bottom of the rig?
Thank you and great job.

We built the device to work on a number of different track systems. Personally, I mainly use a just solid 2 inch metal rails that I place pop cans under it to stabilize it. I also have a green house rail that is shaped like a skateboard half pipe. I cut it in half, and I use the two pieces as my curved track. We also designed a device to hook the two togather, so expect a big S bend coming here pretty quick. Now when I have along ways to hike, I usually then use two broom handles - super light and simple. Really we focused our entire attention on the dolly itself, so then that way we aren't confined to a single space, or just a straight track..
