building a camera

Does anyone know if there is a resource that shows how to build a camera similar to the Lumiere
hand cranked box camera? Are their any filmmakers who are building their own cameras to shoot
with? I have an old toy hand cranked projector which I thought might be adapted into a camera,
which is probably the easiest place to start but I would love to find some actual plans or
instructions to use as a guide.

Thank you,
