    I did a similar thing in my basement darkroom except I used polystyrene foam insulation board wrapped in two layers of black Duvetyne.
    (Black cotton velour fabric. http://www.filmtools.com/duv54rolx50y.html )



    The 1/2-inch insul-board is covered in two layers of black fabric then taped at the edges. It was wedged into the window frame and the edges were packed with felt weather stripping, stuffed in with a putty knife, all the way around.

    Ain't no light going to get in there!

    After three years without a darkroom I am finally getting one. It's four hours away from my house but it's a darkroom and it's all mine.
    Will be located in the darkest corner of a basement, probably by the washer and dryer. Would love to build one wall to make it a separate room but since the house isn't mine I'm not pushing my luck. Beseler arrived last week, rest of the gear is on it's way...hopefully will have a picture or two soon.

    Welcome Luseboy. Your post reminded me of some pictures I recently found. This was my first darkroom I set up when I was 14, though my older brother helped me out.
    The enlarger is a SOLAR and was a gift from a family friend. We used Kodak "tri chem packs" for processing both the film and paper. On the baseboard of the enlarger is my first home-made enlarging exposure meter.

    I have just finished my duck boards after several years of not having them. I've not had a chance to use them yet but I will report one I've given them a test drive.

    I have made them from redwood and given them a mild stain certainly to be ruined upon the first batch of fix.

    C'est la vie

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
