    Jon Grepstad's one is fine, it made me able to build a monorail on my own...

    There are a couple of good sites with info, depends a bit of what you want: mono-rail or field, metal or wood.

    I am in the pocess of getting the parts and tools together for a wooden field, my Shen Hao HZX45-IIA as a starting point.
    Still have not decided jet on the final shape, it might become a Chamonix/Shen Hao PTB54 aswell.
    If I can get enough wood together here in Brazil it will be both, each in a diferent kind of tropical hard-wood.

    User barryjyoung here on APUG has made a book about building LF Cameras. I was on the verge of trying out to make a camera, but I am short on both time and money but send him a pm, he's a friendly guy.
