    that thing looks great!!

    I thought I'd add a couple shots of my newly finished creation.

    it takes a 6x9 back and 3x4 polaroid film back and has tilt/swing, a little lift but not shift. I made it entirely out of recycled and scavenged parts, but the lens board was made by a collagist friend of mine.

    the runners need redesigning and I could do with a lens with a bit more coverage for full movements, but beggars can't be choosers.

    this is my first full build so be nice

    That thing looks awesome! Makes me want one! Whether it works or not, it looks like it was pulled straight out of a Home & Garden home design add. One of those shabby/chic/modern room design articles or something....

    Well, after more than a year the 14x17 is finally finished. Some of it looks nice, lots of it looks like #!@*...especially the bellows. Ground glass is plexi. Sort of looks like a Chamonix, that's because I "borrowed" the design...Used the lens board sliding lock from my old Cambo. Used birch 'cause it's cheap and light. Now I need to check it for light leaks. Then hopefully I can use it to make bigger carbon prints and other alt processes.

    Looks like you've done a pretty good job, I'm surprised its has not got a bigger lens board which to me would of made making the bellows easier ( I assume anyway), and allowed fitting of a larger variety of lens if you come across them.

    Fitting the bellows was pretty easy. I plan on using existing lenses: 355, 450, 600... magnifying glass lenses, and assorted pinholes. The 355G that you see in the pic is about the biggest/heaviest of the three.

    My DIY 8x10 camera and me All elements are home-built, including the bellows and GG.
    The back takes my home built 18X24 cm and 8x10' holders, and commercial 8x10 holders as well. It is also suitable for wet plate, and a DIY bag bellows allows for ultra-wide-angle lenses. Together with a lens, a custom-made wooden tripod, and 5 film holders, the camera gear weighs 12KG and is easy to get around with.
    here are a wet plate shot and a landscape from several days ago
