    I tried going to our local college for DR use, however, they would not let me take the lab without going through other classes. What a joke.... I wrote the guy who runs the foto dept 3 times and he did not even respond back. Something that day clicked inside of me and I started the darkroom project. After hemorrhaging some money I'm up and running and doing a lot time in the dark. Sunday I was in there 15 hours while girlfriend was visiting her folks out of town. lol.

    Here are few phone pics and some results. I must say, there is nothing like fiber prints and split grading development. I'm hooked.

    Here is my DR, need a dry press ASAP.


    Dry mounted in 16x20 mats.

    GKR1,

    Nice!

    I have access to the college lab for another seven weeks, then I am out on my own. I'm sad, and exited at the same time.

    I have read through all three of the major darkroom threads, pretty amazing what can be accomplished in modest space.

    Thanks RT

    You'll be more productive in your own DR.

    In my case, and mentioned by others here, having your own DR to escape to can be profoundly therapeutic. (You've already experienced the Time Contraction.)

    Here are a few picture of my humble Darkroom. Highlights, Durst 10X10 enlarger, CLS300 dichroic head, Beseler 45 Aristo Coldhead light, eight foot sink (I think), and plenty of storage. This is the way that it is in real life, cluttered,

    It's fascinating to see how people have created working spaces that sometimes perform double-or even triple duty.

    Ataim - I haven't started building my darkroom yet, but was given a sink very similar to yours. Is it anchored to the wall, with just the 2 legs and a 2x4 along the front?

    I have the same ABS type sink, and made a base using 2x4 and Simpson Strong Tie Connectors (Lowes or Home Depot). Even the very light duty brackets of the 90 degree variety are more than enough to build a very sturdy base with a shelf underneath.

    Parker, can you post a pic of where the 2x4 cross member supports the sink? It's hard to explain, but I wonder just where and how the wood meets the fiberglass, and how the sink sits on the wood.

    Shoot. At the rate I'm going, it might be another 5 years before I actually build this thing. The retired guy who gave me most of my darkroom equipment stipulated that he wanted one of the first images it produces. He might die before that happens. When we were kids there was so much time to kill. Now I have more money than time and it ain't no bargain.
