    Re: My Cycle Poco 5x7 is Very Excited...

    Done, except for adding the gg clips and testing.

    Camera weighs 2lb 8oz with lens and 4x5 reducing back and can handle 3 1/2" to 14" lenses. This will be great for long hikes.

    Glued up the first three layers today. Too heavy. Realized that adding the base plywood layer make the 1/4 mahogany layer redundant.
