Thought I would share my build and pics
I just thought I would share my finished(for now) 6x17 and pics. It has tilts and swings and a ground glass that switches out for the film back. The blog just kind of picks up pieces of the building and design process along the way.

I had my doubts it would be light tight. But no worries there, it works a treat. The wood does expand and contract somewhat, in tune with the weather, but not enough to prove a problem. Focusing is still spot on.
