Not sure, but I saw a youtube of a kid who build a decent dolly for like $30 from Home Depot. Worked pretty well, used PVC piping, a 4x4 sheet of plywood, and bungee cords to hold the tripod down. I can't seem to find the one I saw right now, but there's a few of them on there.

I gues it was the trick where you shorten one leg of your tripod and use the other two legs as a pivot point to move the camera back and forth while holding the pan handle. That way you create a kind of gliding shot towards your subject. It works good but the one thing to keep in mind is that the camera doesn't stay level that way but makes a curve (down-up-down).

I've seen one before and thought it was brilliant as an idea.

Something like this one.

I'm guessing the "one short leg" tripod trick is this one?

It's the two leg trick. You have to tilt though and be sure and hang on to the dang thing. Great way to drop a cam.
