    Jim, this is sweet! I need to figure out how to build cameras. I'd love to have a camera this size!

    How much would you say it cost you to put this together?

    the 14x17 was under a thousand USD. The bellows alone was 500 from Custom bellows in England. it was my third camera build and the largest to date.

    Well, if you decide not to build a 16x20 you can always use the bellows as a tent when you're out in the field.

    Jim, I would more than likely fit inside! I can do that in the 14x17! So I'm thinking that the 16x20 should be no problem.

    So, I'm in the final assembly stage. I had to rebuild a couple of pieces because they were just not right. I hope to have some photo's of the finished camera tomorrow.

    Hello Jim did you get photos of the wood 8x10? Did you generate any CAD drawings? I am a retired Cabinetmaker/Amature photographer so I have access to a good woodshop.
    I'm looking forward to building the 8x10 like yours, which by the way is beautiful!
    Thanks,Jerry II
