    That's not a bad idea. I don't know if I have enough space to do that, but I'll certainly consider it.

    The idea is to make a functional space, and the trouble is what's behind me - the laundry area. There's no practical way of sectioning that off, but I will sure try. Thanks for the suggestion!

    To mount the plastic, I used a staple gun and put it through long, thin strips of plastic ribbon (maybe 3/4" x 1/8" and 8ft long). Staple the plastic sheets to the rafters between the darkroom and laundry areas. When you're done in the darkroom, you can roll it up to the ceiling, using short lengths of clothesline to keep it up till next time. Fleet Farm has everything needed for this.

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Yes it has a 2x4 screwed to the studs on the back side and the top of the sink is screwed to the 2x4. A 1X6 runs along the entire front lip, with 2x2 post on each end with one cross brace.

    The two tables for the Focomat 2C

    My darkroom is large, and also I let others use it - sometimes 2 - 3 people at the same time. On the pictures you see a part only.

    It has a rather low ceiling and my 2C has stood on a low table, so I can do 50X60cm (20X24) prints, by raising the enlarger (almost touching the ceiling). Works fine, except with the smaller prints I was also always on my knees . . . Until last week when lightning struck and I placed the 2nd table over the 1st lower table. It works beautifully, the grain in the corners is sharp and to place an easel on that large flat surface of the table is very nice . . .

    I've really loved going through this thread. It's really interesting to see people's setups, although I must say I'm extremely jealous of the space people have!

    I finally remembered to take some photos of my setup, not as sophisticated as some and every square inch of space is taken up so I can barely move (It will force me to not buy a Jobo proce$$or for colour ). But it works and I'm really happy that I'm finally up and running after a year of procrastination.
