    I'm 36-years-old. I'm still using the same darkroom I build with my father many, many years ago. It's in the attic of his garage. It gives me an excuse to see the old man at least once a week.

    I really like the multi-channel safelight in the upper right hand corner of photo1

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I'd love to have such an excellent space to work. I have a 12'x12' darkroom in my new place, but I rent and can't do anything permanent. Also, I couldn't even build a sink stand correctly after 3 attempts... I'm no carpenter.

    Well.. my monster enlarger project is dead. Between the device needing 3phase power and a team of engineers to re-wire plus rusting like mad I decided to reclaim the space. All that remains is the frame and I have built 2 large shelves into it. Sad to see the beast die, but the extra shelving is much needed

    I'm 62, and I have a table in my darkroom that I built, with help from my dad, when I was in Junior High School (about 50 years ago). It started out as a place for my ham radio gear, and later my dad modified it so my mom could use it as a sewing table. When my mom died, I brought it home and kept it in a corner of the basement until we built a new home and I designed a new darkroom. It was the perfect size to serve as a work/print finishing table, so I dusted it off and replaced the top to recycle it to its very functional new application.

    So not only was I able to recycle an old piece of furniture for a new use, I was also able to retrieve something from my childhood that makes it possible for me to reconnect with my dad who died almost 30 years ago.

    Well, not in my darkroom (so a bit off topic), but I am right now sitting at a desk that my dad put together 50 years ago. It looked homemade then, and now has 50 years of wear on it. I wouldn't part with it for anything and hope after me it goes to one of his grandchildren.

    It was a 'Little John' pulse xenon. I got it for pennies on the dollar from a company that worked in aerial photography. It could take negs larger than 11x14. The frame is so heavy there is no way for me to move it so i left it and built the shelves around it. Not sure what I'll do if we ever move house! It was one of those 'seemed like a good idea at the time' purchases :o

    Remember that from the feature in B+W mag-it was a brute for sure!
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.

    That's cool. My mother died a couple of years ago and my father has made rumblings about moving to a smaller house. He's almost 70. I grew up there, but I'd miss my darkroom most of all. I can barely even force my self to think about it.
