    The Elwood 8x10 is big.

    I have one, and when I was using it, I had to mount it on the floor, to get reasonable height in my 8ft ceiling room, and put my easel on the floor.

    You need tall ceilings for the 8x10 if you want to work at waist level.
    A 8x10 conversion for the Bessler 4x5 would be a better choice if you have
    a ceiling height issue.

    I put my 8x10 Elwood on a stand 24" high. It just fits with the 8ft ceiling. One thing about the Beseler conversion you need to checkout is lens board size. Some of the modern 240-300mm 6 element f5.6 enlarging lenses are big. The Elwood board handles them with no problems. Not sure if Beseler users are stuck with only the factory 240 f9 lens.
