Well, I used my 4x5 Zone VI as my guide. I am a visual builder. If I can see what I'm trying to build it is much easier. My 11x14 was the second camera I built. My 8x20 took a long time and the 11x14 only 10 months. I built everything from scratch except the back and the bellows. I only used a dove tail saw and a small 4" craft saw to cut some of the wood. I have a lot of small and large Walnut pieces to work with. If you take your time trust me it can be done. There are plans for all different sizes of cameras and you should be able to find some with a google search.
