Link of The Day - DIY projects

Some pretty ambitious DIY projects including: matt boxes, follow, focus systems, rigs dollies & more.
The projects range in difficulty from opening up a lens removing parts and reassembling it (to 'Declick' it) to drilling a hole in your lens cap to make a 'pin hole' lens.
I'm not really a DIY person. I like that other people do it, I reading about it but when it comes to me doing it, it's just not for me.
The pin hole lens cap looks pretty easy & I'd like to try some pinhole shots. I could do that, but I probably won't.
I f your a DIY'er (is that a word?) it's worth a worth a look.
