    Re: Lets See Your Darkroom

    Not quite darkroom, but tangential - made it to Home Depot just before our "Shelter-in-Place" order took effect and bought some material to build out a print storage unit.

    Finished it up this morning, though I may add a secondary unit on top for flat storage of unmatted prints.

    Well organized layout.

    Thanks. I made this all out of simple 2' x 4' MDF. Here's rough plans for anyone who may want to do something similar, and what print sizes go where (long edges go in for the smaller pieces). Sides are 36" tall and top/bottom pieces are 32," and of course all pieces are 24" in depth.

    Nice, mine will be nearly the same @ 10 x 13, with the same setup. However I do have to share with a washer and drier that will be were you are sitting. Construction should have started this month, but you know why that's not happening. BTW it looks like you have set this up for sitting during enlarging. How do yo like that, and what about room for your your legs? I'm thinking I may design mine for standing, easel height would be near 42" and I have a drop table. If I go that route I will need to have the ceiling bumped out above my Durst Pictograph. Anyway thanks for sharing.

    Problem with sharing room with a dryer is the tendency to have lint floating around. If you can find one of those desktop or floor air filtration units you can run it to catch the lint before it goes too far.

    Good idea, or maybe I’ll have a n air filter built in since it will be mostly new construction.

    Slow but progress working on clearing/organizing the garage. I decided to go ahead and hand my two Duplex safelights as a visual reminder of where I want to go. Had to rebuild both sets of filters for one of them. Not hard but a little tedious.

    Here is a basic particle board dresser that I’m modifying for an enlarging table. You are looking at the bottom. I cut off the sides and back below the bottom so I could attach the two 1x4’s you see here as support and attachment for the casters. I’m beginning to think putting casters on everything in the garage for working convenience is the way to go. That way I can still park cars in there, move them out for a night’s production, then roll darkroom stuff out. We will see how that works out.

    You can see a shelf behind which has some photo stuff on it. My plan is organize that for photo stuff only, and then park the enlarger table right next to it.

    Casters on everything (except the sink)!

    I have converted our one car garage into a darkroom. 12 feet of stainless sinks with custom hoods against a long wall and HEPA filtration for fresh air, and using wheels for everything else.

    I can have four people working at once with some of the enlargers, or turn one of my 8x10’s horizontal and comfortably do a mural on my roll paper with everything out of the way.

    For me, wheels are the way to go!
