    I mentioned this book in a recent holography thread, but I'll mention it here again. Check out the Holography Handbook:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/08...102-0646880-7300961?n=507846&s=books&v=glance

    It has lots of practical tips for making your own holograms, including making your optical table with a sand table -- pretty creative. You'll still need a laser with a reasonable coherence length, but the rest of the stuff is easy to make or buy from Edmund Scientific, etc.

    A few friends of mine did a Holography project for an experimental physics class last year. I'll see if I can find a copy of the paper for you.
