There's still things to do, an exhaust fan to install (the wireing is in place), some wall cabinetry, and I'll install a Hass water temperature regulator in time. The WWAD license plate was a X-mas gift from my wife that she had made for me locally after getting the idea from the APUG store.
    Your darkroom looks great, bet your excited to have "it done". The Hass will be a nice addition, I had one in my old darkroom, very nice, set it and for get it. Congratulations!!!

    After building three of these over the years, I think the connectors I used for the bottom would be more than adequate and save a few $$ to boot. Still have one more large work table to build, so all the lessons learned can go to work there.
    yes, there's one 2x4 spanning the front on the inside, then, you see two center vertical 2x4s----the one on the left was the original , the one on the right was installed to accomodate the 4 ft. shelf below the enlarger. Then I filled in the spaces with two other 2x4s, those two were actually an after thought. If you go to the Darkroom Portraits Gallery I have some pictures in there of the dry-side frame. After that photo, I installed more front to back bracing on the top side and the bottom side, it clearly needed more before installing the plywood bottom and the MDF top.

    This darkroom is located in the basement of a student residential building and there are logbooks from the 60's in here, so it has a long history.

    That was me I'm afraid . It looks kind of misplaced in there, but I have no where else to put it.

    I believe it is regular pine, that has yellowed over the years. So no wonderful smell, but it really brings a special atmosphere to this room.

    Now those are brilliant! I picked up a massive dry mount press for a song a little while back, but have been dithering on how to build the equally massive print finishing workbench required to hold it. I think the dither has just ended...

    Somehow I missed your post here-----thanks very much, I'm quite proud of the window idea if I say so myself, it's going to work out wonderfully. I'm somewhat short of materials for printing, have some paper, been spending money getting this thing together, I look forward to doing some good printing.

    Here are some plans from their website. Very easy to modify for your specific project. Pay attention to where it says "Install top connector 1/2" below top of post" otherwise your boards will be a bit crooked.

    My last project will be to build a 10' table for my press, matt cutter, paper trimmer and supplies.

    Be sure to send pics when you finish.
