Luc thanks so much for your response!! I'll be contacting Hugo shortly . My grandfather actually bought me a 2042 when I first started getting into photography, i had no idea how good it was at the time and never used it because it was so heavy! I'll have to get it out of storage now lol. I'm 6ft as well but plan to buy the reflex viewer so I don't think the tripod height will be an issue. By any chance do you have any experience with reflex viewer? Lastly, which wood did you end up choosing? If you picked maple is there any chance you could post a picture of it? I can't seem to find any example online, seems like everyone has been choosing teak.
Sorry for all the questions btw, but the help would be greatly appreciated!
Maple is not available anymore - that is why everybody me included has chosen Teak
