I'm liking these tiny, simple little lensboards. Just knocked out a half dozen in the same aged cherry. Will mount my 121/8 SA today, then I'll have five blanks for Petzvals and future purchases. Nice.
Well, the bellows arrived today. Glued them in, and all work is finally finished! Going to shoot a couple sheets tonight when the kids get home!

The red bellows looks fantastic. I bet it will make much better photographs than it would if they were black - in much the same way as stripes on a car make it go faster!
If I ever get anywhere near finishing my 5x4 camera I think I will get (or make) red bellows.
