I am building the camera. I guess a bigger board more easily supports a #5 Wollensack shutter. In other words, more wood around the great big lens hole. I was thinking that if somebody wanted to buy the camera from me and down the road they wanted another lens board, I wouldn't have to make one for them. They should be able to find something on ebay.
