I considered how much room I would need to do a 10x12 plate in it with a dropped silver tank at a 20 degree angle, and also how much of a tabletop I could get using the vertical dimension I came up with. IIRC, the depth of the box was 10" with a 20" height and 30" width. I cut the front to provide a 14" piece that gives a 24" tabletop when open. Something like this cutaway view:
The position of the sensitizing tank can be rotated 180 for doing smaller plates at a more convenient orientation. The wheel axles are 1/2" carriage bolts set into 2x4 blocks attached to the bottom of the box. I think the legs are set at 20 degree angle from vertical also and simply slide into channels I made on the outside of the box. .
