    I have a bunch of vintage ones like what rwyoung posted. I also have a swivel centre spring one and then there's just the paterson contact proofer that I use for 4x5 negs.

    I'm sure you can make one. check the photos on Bostick. they have a good one for sale. good non warping wood and using a tongue and groove when framing would be the best. then finding spring steal to hold the back in place. If you buy new they will last a life time. I have them from 8x10 to 8x20. I use mine for Azo printing and Pt/PD printing.
    Good luck if you make one, If you are good with wood you can make some really nice ones.

    Here's the link for Lotus - these frames really are the guv'nors but you'll need pockets so deep they go down to your knees.

    Self-made split-back contact frames

    Here are some self-made ones in White Oak, with Baltic Birch plywood backs, and brass springs. If you are handy, they are not too hard to make.

    Here's one I made in 6/4 ash. The springs are stainless steel and the catches are aluminum channel. For some reason I took pictures of it with a rubylith mask in place..
