What type of wood to use for 1880 dry plate camera extension rail?
Hello all - I have finally decided to fabricate an extension rail to replace the shabbily constructed mongrel rail on this circa 1880 dry plate beauty. Question: is this most likely cherry wood or something else such as walnut or mahogany? In the first picture you can see the original front rail that I am trying to match. I am including the shots of the body just for reference.
Thanks in advance,
