    Thanks. It is oak. I was saving it for a guitar, it is quarter sawn and bookmarked joint. I am working on a 4x5, which will be ready tomorrow.

    5x7 non-folder I made last fall. It's more or less a wide angle design, but with the triple extension a 360mm is usable at infinity.

    Colin, it's beautiful, clearly robust engineering and design.

    That is gorgeous. You should see the contraptions I build....no wait, after seeing that I'd be too embarrassed to post photos of my homemade cameras.

    Thanks for the comments.

    I cribbed the base tilt design from Chamonix. I needed relatively narrow standards and hardware to make the camera compact enough to fit in my backpack. I thought the standards would be pretty floppy without the usual angled support braces, but they're very rigid.

    Ecbuyonline2008 made the custom bellows, they did a fantastic job.

    Excellent choice of fasteners, too!

    Funny you should mention that- I spent so much time on the McMaster-Carr website during this project that I would occasionally get booted for 24 hours. I think viewing too many of their CAD drawings sends up a red flag. Finding the right size stock knobs for all the movements is usually the most frustrating part of making a camera. I finally broke down and got a little hobby metal lathe.
