    You could try contacting Patrick Alt and see if he would be interested.

    http://www.patrickalt.com

    Although it does not discuss it in depth on his website, he is also a cabinetmaker and camera builder. he is located in SoCal.

    Guillaume, I'm working on my built from scratch 11x14 designed after a Zone VI folder. It is my second hand built. The first was a 8x20 designed after a Korona. I promised myself (and others) that this would be the last one. What kind of work does it need? I can't believe I asked that!!! Just curious? Maybe I can help. I'm in Ventura.

    Jim, I don't know if you remember an add I posted few months ago, 11x14 Studio camera with stand...
    Someone wanted it and bailed on my friend. And I kept it... And I looked at it everyday... And now I want to use it... -)
    I contacted Patrick Alt, thank you very much Flying C, he lives in Culver City, few blocks from me.
    But Jim, we can have a beer and look at the beast... just for curiosity ! -) -) -)

    Guillaume, I didn't know that Patrick lives in Culver City. He is the master and I'm just doing this for my own enjoyment. When I get The Beast II done (11x14) I would love to get together for a beer down your way and I'll bring both beast's with me. By the way I'm thinking about building an 8x10 now and then selling my Seneca Improved. I guess I have a love for Walnut cameras. If I do a third one at least it would be faster! And I said no more! I really am crazy!! I'll let you know when I'm done, it would be great to meet you.

    Oh sure, I mention beer and I am an embarassment to Canada. You mention beer, and you are the cool guy!
    Kick his ass, Sea Bass!
