Anyone know how to make a home made glide cam? Or is selling an old one?

kalle.i remember seeing some dude make one out of an old tripod and 3 or 4 0,5l bottles filled with water. he tied the bottles to the bottom of tripod and it was definitely more stable than freehand, but it doesn't compare anywhere near a legit glidecam. not so sure about how it will work when the water in the bottles freeze during the winter.
and i'm sure google has answers
C.WoodWhat's your skill level??
I made one on a mill and lathe out of aluminum. Basically looked at a glidecam and from their information on the website I modeled it in 3D cad software then made all the pieces and put it together.
This was the result:
