I'm building my first 4x5 monorail out of wood. I will post images of my design and will definately post a step-by-step when I'm done. The only part of the camera I am not building is the lens - everything else will be handmade from wood (no powertools). I was wondering if anyone had suggestions regarding the wood I use or tips/things they notice about there own wooden camera. Please feel free to comment about my design; any flaws you may see.

Already have a lens: 150mm F5.6 Fujinon-W
but I am keeping my eye out for a brass lens as well.

The design is a work in progress:
