It's essentially the New Standard Scanner build after having also read Clemd973's New Standard build notes. Variations are as follows:
- Top piece of column slots onto bottom piece (lots of drilling and chiselling - see http://www.flickr.com/photos/tserong/78 ... 1235755228)
- An unbelievable amount of time was spent sanding and painting everything. If you're going to do this, do it *before* assembling the base, or you'll spend a lot of time with masking tape on the drawer slides :-/
- Camera mounts are both towards the back, rather than one towards the back and one towards the front. More visually balanced. They're still basically centered though (one is on the near hole of the mounting bracket, one on the far hole, so they're pretty much centered to within 1cm or so of each other).
Total cost was something like AUD $300-400, with about half of that being the cameras. Note that if you're in Australia, you probably won't find keyboard drawer slides and column slides in large hardware stores (Bunnings/Mitre 10), so may instead have to visit a more specialist architectural fittings store for those pieces. I also couldn't find wing bolts to mount the cameras, so substituted short 1/4" bolts and packed them out with a nut each.
