Well, I thought I better update everyone on my camera building. The Walnut 8x20 is a joy to use and look at. I had some wood left over and decided I liked the 11x14 format for contact printing. I'm using my Zone VI 4x5 as my design and I'm building the 11x14 like it. I've been very lucky so far in that I got a Deardorff 11x14 back off of E-bay and also my bellows for great prices. The bellows with the frames matches my dimensions exactly which makes things even easier. I have built the back standard supports, box, rails, bed and I'm working on the front standard right now. I learned on this one that reverse engineering is the way to go, after all thinking backwards fits my nature! This is a picture of the front standard. I have slots to cut and pieces to make. As you can see I'm making a lot of the parts from Walnut instead of brass. It will cut down on the weight and should be durable enough for years to come. I'll post more as I go along.
