Nice going Charles! So you have a rotating back from a Super? There's a nice feature.
Is there any reason why you used acrylic instead of wood? My first thought was phenolic but, of course, I haven't gotten around to many of my projects...

Ahh, okay. Just thought you liked the acrylic better for some reason. And I suppose a decent wood back would be more difficult to make. A single board would crack and/or warp even done in cherry, walnut or mahogany. I've been debating doing 4 boards (1 per side) or trying plywood...

So when are you going to do an 8x10 negative with that camera?
