    I have a small folding table that my developer tray and hot plate sit on for the Pot. Ox (pt/pd developer).
    I use a big set of those burly steel garage shelves next to the sink for all the successive clearing baths for pt/pds and dev water baths for gum bichrom (one on each shelf).
    The trays are the large black grout mixing trays you can get at homedepot/lowes for about $5/piece. Sized perfectly for 12x20 prints on 15x22 paper.
    There is a big 20x24 Yankee tray washer next to the sink that I use for the final wash. I also have a 20x24 vert/slot print washer in the Laundry room that is hooked up to a "Y" on the cold water for the washer, I use a ball valve on it to regulate flow. This is used for final washing of the pt/pd prints (NOT the gums as itll mar the surface) and I use it for washing my 12x20 negs - 2 per slot makes for the ability to wash ALOT of negs

    All my paper coating for pt/pd and gum is done in the bathroom on a glass topped table that sits right in front of the toilet bowl - when coating the toilet bowl becomes my coating chair.

    rather minimalistic and sparse, but fully functioning.

    Anyone that says you can't shoot ULF without a dedicated darkroom ... tell them "bahh"
    My mind goes back to a time........33 years ago........when I wasn't married. The burly steel garage shelves were the give away.

    Jim, my "home" isn't a place to host a party. Thats for sure.

    None more black.
