    Dave, I think it is the same process, at least it certainly looks like it. The wood has a very smooth appearance, it almost glows! It makes you want to touch it. Thanks for the comments.

    Dan, glad you checked it out. I think it's the finish to use. Ill post another picture when all of the hardware is attached.

    Stay Focused!

    Once you're done, put a layer of Bison wax on it. It really helps keep the dirt off of it and makes the parts move without wear.

    I especially like it on the rear standard to help with sliding the film holders in and out without moving the camera.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Robert, Bison wax? That's one I've not heard of before. Where do you get it? Thanks

    Dare I say it?? "Buffalos?"

    No, just kidding, try www.Rockler.com. "Neutral Liberon Fine Paste Wax" is what you want. (or really any non silicone based wood wax)
