Young's Double Slit Experiment Aparatus on a Water Budget

I've been asked to prepare a presentation on a number of topics including multi-path induced fading. I wanted a practical demonstration and remembered Young's classic experiment from my collage days. I don't exactly have access to that kind of apparatus anymore. The Internet to the rescue! There is an amazing teachers reference which includes a way to make optical diffraction slits at home. It works very well. Now I just need something to hold the laser pointer and the slide. I'll post some pictures when I can get a stable setup.
